There are many good reasons to join a support group
Support groups offer a way for people who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's to meet each other, share information, and talk about emotions and problems related to caregiving. One of the time-tested ways people cope with the challenges of caring, support groups offer the emotional support of friends who understand what they are going through. Monthly meetings are also a way to problem solve and to learn how others approach similar situations. All Alzheimer's Association support groups are led by a trained facilitator and there is never a charge to join.
The Alzheimer's Association has many support groups, meeting at various times and locations. Check to see if there is a group close to you that fits your needs. For more information, please call Judy Budlong at 800-272-3900 or email Judy.Budlong@alz.org.
