Connect with others
If someone you 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.
Caregiver Support Group Meetings
The Alzheimer’s Association offers a variety of in-person, videoconference and telephone support groups. Caregiver support groups provide a consistent, caring place for discussion of the challenges of caregiving. Caregivers come to share experiences, tips, information, and offer support in a setting facilitated by staff or trained volunteers.
- Connect with other families and caregivers dealing with the disease, and reduce feelings of isolation
- Develop a better understanding of Alzheimer's disease and the disease process
- Get encouragement and moral support
Meeting dates are subject to change due to inclement weather. To keep our schedule current, revisions are made frequently. If you have any questions call 800.272.3900.
Requirements for in-person support groups
- Following all current state and local health and venue site guidelines regarding masks, social distancing and meeting size, the Cleveland Chapter offer some support groups both in-person and virtually.
- Volunteers and event participants are encouraged to be vaccinated, but it is not required. Wearing masks is optional unless required by the host venue site.
- Online and telephone support programs are available for those who feel uncomfortable attending in-person activities.
