Family and Caregiver Support Groups

The Alzheimer's Association's Family and Caregiver Support Groups are designed to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers through regularly scheduled meetings. They help participants develop coping methods and encourage caregivers to maintain their personal, physical and emotional health, as well as optimally care for the person with dementia. People come to support groups looking for others who "really understand their situation because they've been there too."
