Crossing Bridges educational discussion group

Crossing Bridges

Contact: Pat Wilson, 608.232.3406 or 888.308.6251

Crossing Bridges is a four-week educational discussion group for people who have mild memory loss, are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia and a primary care partner. The overall philosophy of the group is to promote a fulfilled life while living with cognitive change.

Crossing Bridges can help people learn coping skills, enhance their family communication, and have some guidance toward developing future plans.

Sessions take place regularly throughout the year. An interview is required before participating in this group. Please contact Pat Wilson, Family Support Coordinator, at 608.232.3406 or 888.308.6251 for more information.

After completing Crossing Bridges, participants are invited to join:
