We have support groups at various locations and times within our area; attendees tell us that groups help them cope with their role as a caregiver and to understand better ways in caring for the person with Alzheimer's.
The groups are open, meaning you can simpy go to the group without calling, but if you would like, call our Helpline and the Helpline staff can have a support group leader call you and tell you about that particular group. Check to see if there is a group close to you that fits your needs.
Need more information? Call our Helpline at 800.272.3900.
We now have a specialized group for people in the early stages of Alzheimer's and dementia. The Dayton group was started by two individuals with early stage dementia who wanted to reach out and find support.
*For persons living with early stage dementia. If you are interested, you must speak with a staff member first to set up an initial interview by calling our 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900.
