Forums and Online Support Groups

We are very pleased to announce that our Closed and Private Facebook support group has been launched.  Since Facebook members must be 13 years and older, kids younger than 13 can join with their parents. It will allow us to share our daily struggles, connect with other kids, and be a great place to "visit" when an understanding ear is needed.

You can find our Kid Caregivers Support Group (Facebook group) by clicking here: https://bit.ly/2BjLHjg

We look forward to hearing from you and helping out!

Dementia Has Beautiful Moments - a special video with a deaf Alzheimer's patient

I love this video: click here: Video

I love this video. the daughter does not correct her mother. She "goes into HER world." It is the kind and right thing to do, in my opinion. It is inspiring and I would love to share with the deaf community as well.
