Transforming Memory Care

Through education, collaboration, and support

"I can’t thank you enough for providing us with support and guidance, especially now during COVID when caregivers are feeling even more isolated. We appreciate all the Caregiver Support Program has done for us during this journey."

About the Dementia Care Collaborative

The Dementia Care Collaborative was created to educate and support patients, caregivers, healthcare providers, and the community. Dedicated team members offer opportunities for learning and connecting across the hospital and into the community at large. We are here to teach new ways of understanding dementia, how to best communicate and partner with those with dementia and offer support and guidance for caregivers to feel empowered to foster their own wellbeing and resilience.

The Dementia Care Collaborative is part of the MGH Division of Palliative Care & Geriatric Medicine and is an umbrella for the Dementia Caregiver Support Program and the Memory Care Program.

Conversations With Caregivers

We offer a monthly, innovative educational forum to provide the community with a wealth of resources around dementia and caregiving. Expert leaders present accessible, thought provoking and pragmatic programs across a variety of disciplines. Join us each month to take part in our most current Conversation. There is always ample time for questions and answers at the end of each experience, so you have an opportunity to share in the dialogue.

On June 15th, attorney Steven Cohen, will outline the basic tenants of trusts, wills, and all legal documents needed for peace of mind, including powers of attorney and health care proxies. He will also give practical tips on how to protect yourself and family members and what to do if you have not yet created these documents for yourself or for your family. Please bring your questions as there will be ample Q&A time with guidance for how and where to find answers about any issues specific to your situation.

Join us the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm via Zoom.
