Alzheimers Association sponsors Dementia Support Group in Stamford, CT
A local Support Group for families and caregivers of persons with dementia in the Fairfield County Area provides respite.
"We started this group because we felt there was a need not being met," said Nicol Rupolo of ComForCare Stamford. "There are a number of support groups that meet during the day, but there aren't many for caregivers who work or cannot leave their care person during the day."
The support group is led by Nicol Rupolo, Owner of ComForCare Home Care Services, and Maria Scaros, Executive Director at The Greens at Greenwich. The group's mission is to provide a supportive environment for problem-solving and networking among persons who face the challenges of caring for a loved one with dementia.
When people first approach a support group, many thoughts may run through their minds.
"I don't want a support group…but think I may need one?! "
You’re not alone in your feelings. Join us for a lively discussion about sharing and caring that may include laughing and crying!

The support group is sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter. There are no attendance requirements. Come when you can. Leave when you must.
