Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Groups

At Oak Leaf Manor, we understand the toll that memory loss takes not only on our residents, but on their families and friends as well. That’s why we work together as a team with our residents and their loves ones to provide care, understanding and encouragement. As part of this team approach we offer support groups that provide a safe place for loved ones to share their thoughts and experiences and hear from others who are on a similar journey.

Please feel free to join us for this time of education, information sharing, and emotional support. While our meeting locations alternate between our Landisville and Millersville facilities, we hope that you will be comfortable attending every meeting regardless of where your loved one lives in the community. All are welcome and encouraged to join our group. Guest speakers and educational topics will vary from month to month.

What is the Oak Leaf Manor Memory Support Group?

Our Memory Support Group is a free gathering, occurring monthly for persons who are providing care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia related disorders. The group meetings are facilitated by persons trained by the Alzheimer’s Association. The primary purpose of the group is to offer education and knowledge about the disease, and provide support and helpful suggestions to caregivers. No one should go through this alone, and our support group offers the opportunity to:

  • Connect with other families and caregivers who are dealing with the disease and reduce feelings of isolation
  • Learn techniques that can help ease the physical and emotional challenges for both the resident and caregiver
  • Share practical ideas and feelings in a supportive setting
  • Sign up to participate in a Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT®)
