This 8-week online program is for spouses supporting their spouse in the mid- to late-stage dementia. Developed by the Reitman Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital, CARERS is a comprehensive dementia care program that supports problem-solving skill development and introduces the innovative use of standardized patients – actors trained to simulate real-life situations – so that caregivers, guided by expert clinical coaches, will learn how to address communication challenges.

Goals of the Program:

  • Enhance practical skills for caregivers
  • Improve caregivers’ coping and problem-solving skills
  • Enhance caregivers’ confidence in dealing with challenges
  • Improve caregivers’ social interaction and social support

Dates: Wednesdays –  April 24th, May 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, June 5th and June 12th

Time: 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

Location: the group will be held online using Zoom

Registration and an assessment appointment via Zoom are prerequisites. An AST Social Worker will contact you soon for your assessment.

*Please note we offer a separate CARERS group exculsively for family members and friends who are not a spouse
