Are you a caregiver? Get the emotional support you need.

Click here for a list of Alzheimer's Association caregiver support groups in Oregon.

Click here to learn more about our NEW telephone support group on the third Thursday of the month, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. This is a group for individuals who do not have a support group in their community and/or do not have respite or access to transportation.

Support groups create a safe, confidential, supportive environment or community and a chance for participants to develop informal mutual support and social relationships. They also educate and inform participants about dementia and help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems.

For more information, call 1-800-272-3900.


Caregiver Center

You are not alone. Whether you need information about early-stage, middle-stage or late-stage caregiving, the Alzheimer's Association is here to help.
