The Sharing Room

The Sharing Room brand image

The McGill University Dementia Education Program and the Alzheimer Society of Montreal have partnered to offer The Sharing Room, a safe space for care partners to share about their experiences, to connect online with each other to break the isolation, and to engage and identify their own needs as care providers. 

The Sharing Room offers different virtual support groups to care partners of people living with dementia (PLWD). There is a group for partners/spouses and another group for adult children of PLWD, and  each group is offered in both French and English.  

The group size is kept to a maximum of eight participants in order to give everyone ample time and opportunity to express their views. 

The Sharing Room takes place online through Zoom and is facilitated by a trained moderator. Participants will have to commit to meeting with their group for 90 minutes over 6 sessions. Note that these sessions will take place every week for the English groups, and every second week for the French groups.
