Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group

Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s is a challenging task — and sometimes the best support can be found among those who are facing the same situation. Join Dirigo Pines for our monthly meeting for caregivers of anyone with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Our meetings are free and open with anyone in the area. Come, share your experience, and discover that you are not in this alone.
Join us for our next meeting on March 11 at p.m. at Dirigo Pines in Orono. And mark your calendar for future meetings on April 8 and May 13. For more information and full list of upcoming events, click here.  
Memory Care at The Arbor
Did you know that Dirigo Pines offers a safe and personalized program for those diagnosed with memory impairments, including dementia and Alzheimer’s. The Arbor at Dirigo Pines is here to help navigate you through the challenges that comes with memory loss.
Our Village Program offers personalized programming that engages residents in activities that may reflect their former schedules, lifestyles and interests, while helping them feel safe and appreciated. Through enriching experiences and by establishing caring personal relationships with our residents, we find great sources of enjoyment and comfort—together.

Our memory care is further enhanced by It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), an easy-to-use technology designed specifically for seniors to encourage resident activity without the frustration.
