Our support groups, led by trained facilitators, provide caregivers with the opportunity to discuss the many challenges of caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders with others who understand. Our goal is to provide a safe setting which promotes mutual support, both practical and emotional, throughout the course of the disease.
“I want you to know how much the group has meant to me and helped me in this process. Even though I have friends and many colleagues going through similar situations, having this dedicated time and space and commitment offers something extraordinary.”
“I’ve been a member of a support group for 5 years. This support group has saved my sanity, and allowed me to continue on as a caregiver. The support group has been the key to my survival of caring for those I love who have this disease.”
We offer nearly 100 support groups throughout the 5 boroughs in English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Russian, and dozens of other supportive and educational programs and services for caregivers of people with dementia—all available free of charge.
