Adult Child Caregiver Support Group

Adult Child Caregiver Support Group (Caregivers Only)

This support group is catered specifically toward adult children who are providing care for their ailing parent. It will provide you, as a caregiver and loved one, with the opportunity to talk to other individuals who are facing some of the same problems that you are. It is helpful to talk to sympathetic people about the frustrations you are experiencing. Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss diseases create many specific problems for families in their daily lives; simply getting to know other people with similar concerns is a comfort to many.

We offer a safe place to bring up issues that may be difficult to talk about at home. The caregiver can raise specific concerns in an environment where the objective perspectives of others can help them to think about and work through the situation.

This is an excellent place to learn about the disease process that happens with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It is also a place to find available community resources, and to learn about the legal issues involved and how to plan for the future. Members of the group welcome all caregivers and willingly share their ideas and experiences.
