JFS of Metrowest, in partnership with the Massachusetts Alzheimers Association, is pleased to offer a virtual support group for all family members and friends caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.

The support group is intended to be a supportive and educational gathering and is facilitated by both Malka Young, LICSW, director of Allies in Aging JFS Eldercare Solutions, and Dr. Jane Joiner, MD (retired), a JFS volunteer.

This group will meet one hour each week. Please note that this support group is not meant for professional caregivers, but for family members and friends of those living with these diseases.

To register and receive information on how to join this group, please call (800) 655-9553 or visit the JFS Elder Care Contact Page.
