Get the support you need. Meet with others for supportive, meaningful discussion led by a trained facilitator. Groups are available for caregivers or for people living with early memory loss.

The Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter has many support groups at various days and times. Some of our groups meet monthly on an ongoing basis, others meet weekly for a limited time (6-8 weeks). Meetings typically last 60-90 minutes. We periodically offer specialized, time-limited groups for individuals with early-stage dementia, younger-onset dementia, for grieving caregivers, Spanish-speaking caregivers, and more. Be sure to inquire about these and all of our support group offerings when you call our 24/7 Helpline.
