Support Groups

Dunwoody UMC offers several life-specific support groups that meet regularly to help members and the community deal with difficult issues such as memory loss, divorce or death.

Caregiving for a loved one with a form of dementia can be a challenging and draining experience.  If you are that caregiver, even if it is long distance, there is a confidential support group just for you where you can feel support from others who are on that same journey of love.  Sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association, this group meets on the third Thursday of each month from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the Wesley Room. For further information contact JoAnn Akers at 404-434-9467.
