Support Groups

The Timberline Church (faith-based) Dementia Care Partners’ Support Group meets on the 2nd Friday of each month 10:00 AM-11:30 AM in Room 213. Participants authentically share with one another the joys and challenges of being care partners with a loved one living with dementia.  

While care partners are in the support group, an intergenerational memory cafe meets on the 2nd Friday of the month 10-11:30 at Timberline Church in Room 214.  This gathering  is for people living with dementia so that their care partners can attend the support group across the hall. Call 970-213-4548 with questions.

We are in the process of setting up a post caregiving support group. Check back soon for more info.
