Get the emotional support needed
A support group is a regularly scheduled in-person or virtual gathering of people with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, family, friends or caregivers who interact around issues relating to dementia. Groups can have social, educational and/or support components and are facilitated by individuals who have received training from the Alzheimer's Association. We have many support groups throughout central and western North Carolina, at various times and locations.
In addition to our general caregiver support groups, we also offer several groups to fit the needs of particular groups.
