 Support Groups for Alzheimer's Caregivers and Friends

We have many support groups, at various times and locations in southeastern Virginia. Check to see if there is a local group that fits your needs and if not, consider volunteering as a support group facilitator or co-facilitator. Contact Debra Davis at or 800.272.3900 with questions or to volunteer as a facilitator or co-facilitator. Training will be provided.

We have Alzheimer's caregiver orientation classes and educational classes available here.

The purpose of Early-Stage Support Groups is to
provide a safe and supportive environment of peers
who are living in the early stages of Alzheimer’s
disease or related dementia and their care partners.
These groups offer dementia-related education,
emotional support, and connections with resources so
that the group members may enhance their lives in
the midst of the disease. Please contact Debra Davis
at or call 800.272.3900 for more
information or to schedule an interview.
