Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Groups

Connecting with others is a vital part of the caregiving equation. AFA offers free Alzheimer’s and dementia support groups, facilitated by AFA’s licensed social workers. These support groups give caregivers and others impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia a place to connect and share with one another.

“The support from people sharing their experiences was priceless. I got so many ideas from them, feedback on what to expect and how to handle situations, and accolades that I am doing my best as a caretaker.”
