Build a support system with people who understand.
Alzheimer’s Association® caregiver support groups, conducted by trained facilitators are a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to:
• Develop a support system.
• Meet fellow caregivers who really understand because they’ve been there, too, when things are
difficult or isolating.
• Exchange practical information on caregiving challenges and possible solutions.
• Talk through issues and ways of coping.
• Learn about community resources.
• Share feelings, needs and concerns in a confidential, supportive, non-threatening and non-judgmental atmosphere.
