Caregiver Support Groups

What is a Caregiver Support Group?

Caregiver 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.

We have many caregiver support groups, at various times and locations. Check to see if there is a local group that fits your needs. Please call our 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900 before attending a group for the first time to verify meeting information, obtain directions or other information about the group, as schedules and times change occasionally.

The caregiver support group, conducted by trained facilitators, is a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) to learn about educational topics such as disease information, legal matters, driving, and build a support system with people who understand. No cost to attend. Registration is required to Riverside Neurology Specialists at 757.637.7500.
