Developing a Community of Support One Dementia Friend at a Time

19 May 2021

“I wish we were living with cancer instead of Alzheimer’s.”

As a social worker and support group leader, I’ve heard that said many times before and it used to take me by surprise. The first time I heard it said was from a woman who had Alzheimer’s. She shared her thought in our monthly support group for people living with younger onset Alzheimer’s disease and there were many nods of agreement around our circle.

I thought the course was amazing and feel honored to have been part of it. Thanks for all your hard work!
