Support groups
We offer a variety of support groups for all individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease, at various times and locations. Groups are facilitated by trained volunteers. Some locations offer specialized groups for those with younger-onset and early-stage Alzheimer’s, adult caregivers and others with specific needs.

A caring and understanding place where people touched by Alzheimer's go to learn more about the disease, to share caregiving ideas, to express their feelings, to hear about advances in research and advocacy, and to help other caregivers who are in need. A place where caregivers put their own needs first by taking care of themselves. All are welcome. Check to see if there is a group close to you that fits your needs.

Please note: We make every effort to keep this list up-to-date. Please be sure to call the contact listed to verify meeting days, locations and times before attending a support group. If you have any problem contacting a group leader, please contact the Chapter at 860.828.2828.
