Dementia Caregiver Support Groups @ UNI Dementia Simulation House

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until September 10, 2025

The UNI Dementia Simulation House we will be hosting two, 6-week, family caregiver support groups at the house. One group will focus on people whose spouses/partners are living with dementia, and the other group will focus on people whose parents are living with dementia. The groups will be held on Tuesdays from October 4 through November 8. People can attend all of the meetings or come to any meetings that fit their schedule.

1-2 p.m. Family Caregivers whose Partner/Spouse is Living with Dementia

7-8 p.m. Family Caregivers whose Parent is Living with Dementia

The purpose of the groups is to provide a safe space for family caregivers to share their experiences and to gain support from other participants. The groups will be facilitated by graduate students from the UNI Counseling Program. While they will not be providing professional counseling services, the students will be there to listen, to provide a supportive presence, to help people to make connections, and to keep the sessions focused on the needs of the group. The student facilitators will also do their best to provide resources and referrals as needed, and the emphasis of each session will be support.

If you, or someone you know, would like to attend, or if you have questions, please send a message to Olivia at dementia.simulation@uni.edu
