 Support Groups in the Kingwood, TX area 
 Lake Houston Alzheimer's & Dementia
Caregiver Support Group

I facilitate this monthly support group for family members and caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia related disorders. We have been meeting since November 2002. Group members encompass a variety of experience – women and men, spouses and children, early and late onset, early stage to end stage disease, cared for at home and in care facilities.
   
We are a discussion group rather than a speaker group. Click here to read about how the group works. Attendance typically is 10 to 15. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 2929 Woodland Hills Dr., Kingwood, TX 77339.
 
Covid precautions:
1- Only fully vaccinated people may attend in person. First-time attendees must send me a photo of their CDC Vaccination card. (I will only use it to verify vaccination status, and you only need to do this once.) Email 
2- Advance Reservations are required. No drop-ins.
3- In-person attendance is limited.
4- Zoom component -- If you cannot attend in person for any reason, you can access the meeting via Zoom. Advance registration is required so that I can send you the Zoom link.
  
In addition to our support group meeting, we also have a Dinner Out each month at a local restaurant. This has proved to be a very popular activity, always an enjoyable evening! 
   
If you wonder how you would benefit from attending a support group, check out this article "Caring for an Ill Spouse, and for Other Caregivers" from the New York Times series "The Vanishing Mind."
