Care Partner Support Meetings in Minnesota

Caring Conversations are drop-in support groups intended for people who provide support and care to a spouse, partner or relative living with Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, mild cognitive impairment or a related disorder.

These support meetings, which are led by Mayo Clinic facilitators, are a way for people to feel heard, understood and supported. The group offers a place to share experiences and feelings confidentially with others who are on a similar path, with opportunities for reflection, problem-solving and information gathering.

Two meetings are offered each month at different locations. All meetings are open to the public. Advance registration isn't required.
