Alzheimer's Support Group:

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, there are several resources and support groups to help you along the way, including listed here. 

The Alzheimer's Association

The Alzheimer's Association is a national nonprofit that helps organize many different support groups, including online and face-to-face groups that meet across the country.

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA)

Alzheimer's caregivers often find it challenging to attend in-person support group meetings due to their busy caregiving obligations. Knowing this, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) offers free, telephone-based support meetings weekly.

Well Spouse Association

The Well Spouse Association offers free nationwide support to the wives, husbands, and partners of chronically ill or disabled people.

Memory Cafe

Each Memory Cafe has a different focus and format. Some groups provide education, while others are activity-based, offering group activities such as music, dance, and art.
