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.
