Get the emotional support you need

An Alzheimer’s Association support group is an open gathering of people with common needs and interests who come together to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage the shared challenges of dementia in a safe environment. Support groups may include persons with dementia as well as caregivers. They are held at various times, locations and languages.

To find a support group, download our Support Group Directory or call our 24-hour Helpline: (800) 272-3900.
