Support Groups

The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance is deeply concerned with providing support to those who are caring for persons with dementia. Our mission is to help caregivers take care of themselves as well as provide a quality life for the person with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Join us in a caring and understanding environment where you can ask questions and get straight answers from people who have been there. Learn creative and caring problem-solving techniques, get informed about helpful resources, and hear about advances in research and advocacy. Discover you are not alone in the way you feel! You may find that you can help others who are experiencing where you’ve already been. Remember, laughter, taking care of yourself, and planning for the future are essential to well-being.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Due to the pandemic, many of our support groups have transitioned to online Zoom meetings or conference calls. Please contact the Dementia Outreach Specialist in your county if you are interested in joining their online support group.

Senior Planet and AARP host free webinars on how to use Zoom. Check out their Facebook page for a schedule.
