Two new support services were developed this past year at McCormick Dementia Services. The McCormick Lewy Body/Parkinson’s Disease Dementia Caregiver Support Group is the only one of its kind in the region that provides caregivers with the particular information they need to assist them in their role. Also new this year is Powerful Tools for Caregivers – an enhanced education workshop offered in partnership with the South West Self-Management Program that provides practical, hands-on learning opportunities for participants.
