Upcoming Alzheimer's Association Support Groups

October-November 2021

These support groups are offered for 6-8 weeks by phone and/or webinar. Times listed are Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

Support groups can be a lifeline for people living with Alzheimer’s
disease and their caregivers. Support groups create a safe, confidential, supportive environment for participants to develop informal mutual
support and social relationships. They also offer participants an opportunity to learn about dementia and develop methods and
skills to cope with challenges.
