Build a support network with people who understand.
Alzheimer's Association support groups are a safe place for caregivers and loved ones of people with dementia to:
- Develop a support system.
- Exchange practical information on challenges and possible solutions.
- Talk through issues and ways of coping.
- Share feelings, needs and concerns.
- Learn about community resources.

Support groups follow state and local health guidelines related to COVID-19. At this time, proof of vaccination and the use of masks is preferred, but not required.
Support groups and their facilitators are not to be contacted for commercial purposes, solicitation, or visits from anyone who is not currently caring for someone with dementia.
