We have about 30 different support groups, which meet at various times and locations, throughout our
Western New York service area (which includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties). Caregiver support groups provide caregivers with an opportunity to share stories, information and resources with each other in a confidential environment. There is no minimum attendance requirement, so feel free to come just once to check it out, or every single time the group meets.
*NEW* VIRTUAL Support Group for Young-Onset Caregivers.
