Caregiver Support Groups
If someone you know and care about is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, there is something you can do to help them and yourself. Plan to visit an Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver Support Group this month.
Support groups meet monthly to provide caregivers with an opportunity to share their experiences and receive support from others coping with Alzheimer’s disease. There is no cost or commitment to attend. If you have questions about support groups in general, please call the Helpline at 800-272-3900.

20's & 30's Social Group
This group is designed for young adults in their 20s or 30s with a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. The group meets quarterly, for dates or more information email Marisa Kress at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
The Alzheimer’s Association, Central Ohio Chapter, is in need of both caregivers and professionals to volunteer in facilitating our monthly support groups. We currently have several opportunities to co-facilitate our existing support groups or start a new group in an area we are not serving. If you are interested in facilitating a support group and have experience working with caregivers of persons with dementia, please email email@example.com or call 800-272-3900.
