Alzheimer’s Association® Support Groups

Alzheimer’s Association caregiver support groups are conducted by trained facilitators and are a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia. These groups help caregivers develop a support sys-tem, allow members to exchange practical information on caregiving challenges and possible solutions, and talk through issues and ways of coping, as well as share feelings, needs and concerns. They are also a place to learn about outside community resources.
See attached pages for a complete listing of our caregiver support group in Lane and Douglas counties.
