Who leads the groups?
Our groups is are led by a physician or nurse practitioner social worker or RN care coordinator from The MIND Center and UMMC Geriatrics and a social worker. All of our leaders have extensive experience in working with patients and family members coping with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. A physician, nurse practitioner or guest speaker will frequently accompany the group leader to share their expertise and answer questions from the attendees. Although members gain knowledge from these health care professionals, the most valuable insight comes from group members themselves sharing stories and support.
