An Alzheimer’s diagnosis can have a significant impact not only on the diagnosed individual, but on their friends, family and loved ones as well. Navigating the effects of the disease, care plans and roles and responsibilities can be very challenging emotionally. At Banner Health, we understand this and are here to help.
We offer several support groups for those who have been diagnosed, as well as their families, friends and caregivers. We also offer a support line to call if you need immediate assistance or prefer a more private setting.
The support groups at Banner Health provide opportunities to connect with other people in similar circumstances. Guided by dementia experts at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute and Banner Sun Health Research Institute, our support groups often have a specific focus or circumstance to ensure you are able to find a group that best meets your needs.
We encourage you to find a support group to find or share advice, learn new strategies, connect with others or just listen. All groups are currently offered online via Zoom.
If you are seeking immediate information, advice or support for you and your loved one, you can call the support line and speak with a team member who is ready to answer your questions, provide valuable resources or simply listen.
Learn more by contacting the memory care center where you receive care.
The compassionate support staff at Banner Health are here to help you and your loved ones navigate Alzheimer’s disease to find help and hope through a caring community of support.
