Support Group Services
Support Groups allow caregivers, persons with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, and/or family members to meet on an ongoing basis to receive support from their peers and information on the disease. The following are types of support groups available through Alzheimer’s Los Angeles.
Caregiver Support Groups
When it comes to caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, it’s hard to do it alone. This program provides education about the disease. Groups are peer support and held in different languages throughout Los Angeles County (such as Spanish, Korean and Japanese).
Telephone Support Groups
Sometimes it is not possible for a caregiver to attend a Support Group in person, whether due to life challenges or the nature of caregiving. Participating in a telephone support group allows the individual a regular time to talk to others who are going through a similar situation.
Early Stage Support Groups
These support groups are specifically for persons in the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease. Information about these groups can be found in the Early Stage Services section of this directory.
