Support Programs

The health and safety of those we serve is our top priority. Per CDC and California Health Department recommendations regarding community gatherings in the midst of COVID-19, the Alzheimer’s Association Support Groups will now be held virtually for you to join via telephone or computer from comfort of your own home.
 

Alzheimer's Association support groups provide family caregivers the opportunity to connect with others who understand. Participants exchange practical information on challenges and possible solutions, talk through issues and ways of coping, and learn about available resources.
