Caregiver Support Groups
It is very beneficial for family members and caregivers involved with caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia to attend Support Group meetings.  Attending meetings can help you to feel less alone and learn that others share in your feelings, frustrations, and concerns.  The listed groups are general groups for all caregivers of an individual with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia unless otherwise noted.  For more information on these groups, contact 402.502.4301 or 800.272.3900.

Highlight on an Early Stage Support Group
Do you have a loved one who was recently diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's disease or another dementia?  The Nebraska Chapter has an Early Stage Alzheimer's disease and other dementias Support Group designed for care partners and their loved ones with a diagnosis of an early stage dementia.  They participate in a non-threatening environment to discuss issues dealing with emotions affecting the loved one with dementia, the caregiver, the family and others as well as promote ongoing education.

Please contact Elizabeth Chentland at 402.502.4301 or via e-mail:  echentland@alz.org for more information, questions, or to reserve your spot.
