Find support, education and hope in a compassionate and safe environment.
Alzheimer’s Association support group meetings are free and open to unpaid caregivers, family members and individuals experiencing mild memory loss.
Participation in a support group can be an empowering experience; helping members feel better prepared to cope with their unique situation. Support group members report feeling less alone, more able to confront their daily challenges, and more hopeful about their future. Confidentiality of shared information is honored.
We offer over 125 support groups throughout Washington State and Northern Idaho, and are always adding more. If there are no support groups currently offered in your area, please call our 24/7 Helpline (800) 272-3900, so that we can work to add more support groups where they are needed most. In the meantime, our Helpline can provide you with valuable information, education and support.
Please call the contact listed to verify meeting days, locations and times before attending.
