HFC + IA² are partnering to improve the wellbeing of Native Elders and caregivers during Covid-19 and beyond. Together they are now offering Online Support Groups.
This unique opportunity is for American Indian and Alaskan Native family members who are providing care to loved ones with memory loss, other cognitive issues, and/or a diagnosis of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.
These intimate groups of no more than 10 are led by trained group facilitators who have experience supporting Alzheimer’s caregivers and who have specific knowledge of and/or experience in supporting Tribal communities, Alaska Native Villages, and urban Indians)
Caregiver support groups are FREE and most groups meet weekly.
The International Association for Indigenous Aging (IA2), which manages the American Indian and Alaska Native Resource Center for Brain Health, is partnering with HFC to provide up to 25 respite care grants for family caregivers of American Indian and Alaska Native people living with memory loss, other cognitive issues, and/or a diagnosis of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.
