Get by with a little help from Presbyterian SeniorCare Network
Alzheimer’s support services are available across our Network


Alzheimer's disease is life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. Having a helping hand when you need it is key to keeping yourself, and your loved one living with dementia, healthy and happy. When you need a little help or an ear to listen, support services are available.

Support groups

Often times, caregivers say they are looking for support from people who "really understand because they've been there." An Alzheimer's Support Group offers just that – a place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet and develop a support system.

Support groups offer a place to:

  • Exchange information on caregiving problems and solutions
  • Talk through challenges and ways of coping
  • Share feelings, needs and concerns

Presbyterian SeniorCare Network, in affiliation with the Alzheimer’s Association, holds support group meetings in various locations:

  • Oakmont area: 4th Tuesday of every month from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Woodside Place of Oakmont (1215 Hulton Road, Oakmont, PA 15139)
  • Washington area: 2nd Wednesday of every month from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Hillsview Chapel at the Presbyterian SeniorCare Network Washington campus (835 South Main Street, Washington, PA 15301)

We hope you'll join us!
