As families are also affected by the disease, IMCC offers support groups and individual or family consultations to reduce caregiver stress and provide practical solutions to caregiving challenges. We also offer monthly memory screenings at our center free of charge. Additionally, we offer the SHARE Program specifically for families in the early stages looking for a hands-on way to plan for the future.
Led by experts in dementia care, support groups offer people in like circumstances the chance to share practical advice, discuss frustrations and fears and connect with others who are on a similar journey in a secure group environment.
Every situation is unique. IMCC can meet with families in person or by phone to discuss a family’s specific needs or challenges and make recommendations of area resources that may be appropriate.
The SHARE Program is a series of 5 weekly sessions that provides families with a recent diagnosis of dementia an opportunity to discuss values and preferences for care, in order to build a strong network of support they can rely on now, and in the future.

"We participate in as many educational, support and social activities as possible which have given us hope, knowledge, strength, and friendships. So many wonderful activities help us navigate through a very challenging time in our lives. I really don't think I could keep my husband at home if it weren't for IMCC."
