Caregiver Support Groups
Alzheimer's disease is life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. Our support groups provide a place to connect with other caregivers who truly understand what you are going through.
Often times, we hear caregivers say they are looking for support from people who "really understand because they've been there, too." An Alzheimer's Caregiver Support Group offers just that – a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet and develop a mutual support system.
Prefer to get support online? Join AlzConnected, our online community of caregivers.
It's a place to:
- Exchange practical information on caregiving problems and possible solutions
- Talk through challenges and ways of coping
- Share feelings, needs and concerns
- Learn about resources available in your community
All of our support groups are facilitated by trained individuals.
In addition to caregiver support groups, we also have support groups designed specifically for people in the early stage of Alzheimer's.
