The Alzheimer's Association caregiver support groups are designed for the loved ones of individuals with dementia.
A support group is an open gathering of individuals with common challenges, needs and interests who come together to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to better cope with and manage their shared challenges in a safe, confidential environment.
There are more than 30 caregiver support groups led by trained facilitators in the chapter's five-county service area. The groups offer vital links to other caregivers and an opportunity to learn more about caring for a loved one with dementia. Group members support and encourage each other while exchanging practical information and resources.
Find a complete list here of all of the chapter's caregiver support groups in Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Lorain counties.
