Support Groups

Doug Seubert is a nationally certified dementia practitioner and a dementia specialist in the state of Wisconsin. He has experience and special training in leading dementia-specific support groups for caregivers and health care professionals. For information about any of these specific support groups, please contact Doug at 715-383-0897 or send a private email to doug@marshfieldpurpleangels.org.    


Alzheimer's Disease (AD) 
As a member of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA), Doug Seubert leads a monthly support group for family members and caregivers of individuals living with Alzheimer's disease, which is the most common cause of dementia. This support group is not affiliated with the Alzheimer's Association, and in fact offers an alternative to that model. Caregivers and family members support each other and discuss relevant topics and concerns. 


Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD)    
In partnership with the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD), and as a member of the AFTD Support Group Facilitator Network , Doug Seubert leads a monthly support group for those caring for someone with Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD). Doug currently offers the only AFTD-affiliated support group for FTD caregivers in Wisconsin. 


Lewy Body Dementia (LBD)   
Through a partnership with the Lewy Body Dementia Association, Doug offers the only support group specific to Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) in central Wisconsin. This monthly support group helps caregivers address topics and concerns specific to dementia with Lewy bodies. 


Purple Angel Support Team (PAST)
This monthly support resource does not adhere to the typical support group model. This group is for family members, friends, and anyone providing care or support to any individual with any type of dementia: In finding common ground we share in a common purpose. While dementia-specific support groups address the needs and concerns of specific types of dementia, the Purple Angel Support Team provides another level of support where everyone benefits.


All of these support groups are offered free of charge. Light refreshments are served and supervision/respite care (provided by a trained, professional care worker) is available onsite for those who need to bring their loved one with them to any meeting.
