 WHY JOIN A SUPPORT GROUP?
Support groups are groups of people who get together regularly to talk about issues relating to Alzheimer's disease. Groups combine social, educational and support components and are facilitated by trained individuals. 

Support groups are a safe, confidential supportive environment where you can find support, encouragement and wisdom from others with similar experiences. You'll also get education and the latest information about dementia and will develop skills to help you problem solve. Some groups may be topic-specific, such as grief or early stage, while others are more generic in nature.

All support groups are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is recommended.

** As COVID-19 vaccines become more accessible and the number of seniors vaccinated grows, we will begin to slowly return to in-person support group engagement. These decisions will be based on guidance from the CDC, state and local guidelines, as well as the comfort of our support group facilitators, host sites and regular group attendees. If you are new to a group or have not participated in a while, please call ahead or bookmark this page to check the status of the group.**
