Support Programs
Alzheimer's Association Support Group programs provide people with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers and others affected by the disease the opportunity to exchange information as well as develop methods and skills to solve problems. Participants are also able to develop mutual support and social relationships while learning about available resources.  To find a Support Group near you, view the full listing by County below, detailing the meetings held in our Chapter's area.

Memory Cafés
What is a Memory Café?
Memory Cafés engage families dealing with memory loss in a relaxed environment, promoting social interaction and support. As we face these lifestyle changes, let's remember that we each have an important story to tell. We're in it together.

Alzheimer's Community Forums
Held throughout our service area to bring greater understanding and involvement:

  • Learn about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss.
  • Bring a friend who has been affected by the disease.
  • Share your thoughts about how we can help people in your community.

Interested in becoming a Support Group or Memory Café facilitator?  Please visit our Volunteer page to create a profile, submit an application and start the training process.
