We have support groups at various locations and times within our area; attendees
tell us that groups help them cope with their role as a caregiver and to understand
better ways in caring for the person with Alzheimer's.
The groups are open, meaning you can simpy go to the group without calling, but
if you would like, call our Helpline and the Helpline staff can have a support group
leader call you and tell you about that particular group. Check to see if there is a group
close to you that fits your needs.
Need more information? Call our Helpline at 800.272.3900.
The Early Stage Education and Support Group is for the diagnosed individual and,
when possible, their care partner. Everyone will meet together for 30 minutes of
dementia education, and then break up into two 30-45 minute support groups
– one for those with dementia and the other for care partners. This series will last
for six months and culminate with a celebration the following month.
Initial interview required; contact Sarah Cameron, Clinical Services Coordinator, at 937.610.7012.
The Alzheimer’s Association message boards and chat rooms provide a virtual
online community for persons with Alzheimer's, caregivers and care providers.
Our message boards have thousands of registered members from around the
United States and thousands more who refer to the stories and information that is
available 24 hours a day.
