CARES provides an opportunity for people with memory impairment and their care partners to participate in two separate support groups—held simultaneously. One group provides information, guidance and respite to caregivers while the other group provides conversation and socialization for those with memory impairment.
The program is free and confidential allowing for freedom of self-expression and open conversation. The program is led by Alan Johnson, LICSW, Director of Community and Family Outreach, Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services. CARES programs are funded by the Tufts Health Plan Foundation.
CARES program is held on the first and third Friday of each month from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. The first CARES group starts on August 7, 2015.
