Circle of Care – Couples Group

Group Name: Circle of Care – Couples Group

Description: We have been serving the Toronto area since 1974. It all began in 1970, when Circle of Care was launched as a demonstration project called Coordinated Services to Jewish Elderly, under auspices of the Toronto Jewish Welfare Fund (now the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto). We have gone through a few name changes over the years to reflect our expanded mandate. We now serve individuals of many faiths and cultures, and our clients include people of all ages.

Come and share your experiences with others in a safe and friendly group environment. This support group is for couples 55+ with dementia and or cognitive impairment. There is no cost to attend the meetings. Please call for more detailed information.
