Get the emotional support needed


A support group is a regularly scheduled in-person or virtual gathering of people with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, family, friends or caregivers who interact around issues relating to dementia. Groups can have social, educational and/or support components and are facilitated by individuals who have received training from the Alzheimer's Association. We have many support groups throughout central and western North Carolina, at various times and locations. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term.  At the current time, Support Group participation will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible.
