Hospice of the Valley is inviting caregivers to join other care partners while remaining in the comfort of their home to discuss the stresses, challenges and rewards of caring for a person living with dementia.

The nonprofit is now offering a free virtual support group for dementia care partners that meets Wednesdays, from noon to 1pm. The group is facilitated by a medical social worker who specializes in dementia.

Caregivers will need an internet connection and device such as a smartphone, tablet or computer to use the video-conferencing app Zoom.

Hospice of the Valley is committed to supporting dementia patients and their families. The nonprofit agency is building a Dementia Care & Education Campus in Phoenix, scheduled to open in 2021.

For more information or assistance with the virtual support group, call 602.636.6363, email dementiacare@hov.org or visit hov.org/our-care/dementia-care/dementia-education.
