Alzheimer’s Support Group

Shallowford offers a weekly support group for families and friends caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This support group provides guidance, solace, and fellowship to caregivers. We invite you to share your experiences and gain tools to help manage this disease.

  • Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (via Zoom)


GriefShare is a support group that meets for a 13-week series a few times throughout the year. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and come to see your group as an “oasis” on your journey through grief. The group is led by individuals who have experienced loss and have successfully moved through it. Group leaders and participants will walk with you on the path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.


Multifamily Addiction Support

Whether you have struggled with addiction or love someone who is addicted, you are welcome to join our weekly meetings for discussion, support, and sharing. Years of built-up hurt, confusion, and shame can be healed as family members learn about the effects of the disease which is addiction. Together, we will heal our own issues and learn how to best support troubled family members during their recovery from addiction.

  • Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (via Zoom)

This group is open to all who have been affected by addiction and is free of charge. Weekly meetings are sponsored by the Shallowford Family Counseling Center and Willingway Hospital.
