Our Program And Services

Alzheimer’s & Caregiver’s Support

GNJ Alzheimer and Caregiver support and program Our Caregiver’s support groups rely on group processes to assist caregivers in developing new competencies and coping strategies related to their caregiver experience. We have created a comfortable setting to offer emotional support, encourage information sharing, and promote skills development. Participation in our GNJ Support group provides a vital opportunity to connect to the community and other caregivers. The support group meets in person on a weekly basis in the caregiver’s lounge or virtually once a month via a conference call. Support is offered to any caregiver regardless of their participant’s cognitive function.
