God gave burdens, but He also gave shoulders.” ~ Yiddish Proverb

Caring for loved ones living with dementia is an honor and a privilege. But for many it is also wrought with a fair amount of grief and isolation. Dementia is overwhelming not only for those experiencing it, but also for their caregivers and families.

This is an opportunity for caregivers to share their stories, ask questions and receive support from others traveling a similar journey.
