More Information

What Are Dementia Caregiver Support Groups?

Dementia caregiver support groups provide emotional support, information, resources, and a platform for caregivers to share strategies and lessons learned with other caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

According to many caregivers, building a local support system is a key way to get help. Some caregivers need help when their loved one is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Other caregivers look for help when their loved one is in the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. It is okay to seek help whenever you need it.
