TBI’s Dementia Support Group offers a safe place for family care givers and friends, group engagement, practical exchange of information, talking through challenges and ways of coping, discussing resources available in the community and mutual support through the sharing of feelings, needs and concerns.
The Dementia Support Group grew directly from a seminar on dementia that Rabbi Morgan and Dot Nathan put together for TBI. It was one of a series of very successful seminars and workshops that TBI ran on a variety of mental health issues.
We thank Denise Same sincerely for creating this group and leading it for 18 years. Our present facilitators are experienced mental health workers Alana Szylit and Anna Debby Shaw. The administrator continues to be Dot Nathan. Please contact Dot through the TBI office if you wish to join this group.
