Our support groups are for friends, family members and caregivers of someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or a type of dementia. Groups are free and open to the public and meet in person, via phone and via Zoom.
Support groups provide emotional, educational and social support through monthly meetings. These groups offer safe and confidential settings for participants to problem-solve and process their emotions. They encourage caregivers to maintain their own well-being, as well as provide the best care for the individual living with dementia.
We offer many specialty groups, including:
- Black/African American Care Partners
- LGBTQ+ Care Partners
- Loved One in a Memory Care Facility
- Younger-Onset Care Partners
- Recently Bereaved Caregivers
- Spanish Language
- Frontotemporal Dementia Caregivers
- Lewy Body Dementia Caregivers
- Book Clubs
