Support Groups



We encourage you to join our upcoming support groups that occur each month. If you know of someone looking to learn more about dementia, please share this with them.

Our aim is to equip families, spouses and care providers with ways to sustain themselves when they face difficulty or when a spouse is diagnosed with dementia. “Sometimes all that a participant in the group needs is for someone to listen,” says Susan Swanepoel, Quality of Life manager at Livewell Village, Somerset West.

Our support groups provide a place to connect with other caregivers and the Livewell team who truly understand what you are going through. Whether you need information about caregiving, wanting to share your story or simply need to be in a safe environment to seek help, the Livewell support groups are here to help.

“The support group will help you deal with the harsh realities associated with the care your mom or dad needs. It provides a non-judgemental environment where participants will discover they’re not alone.” – Susan
