Support Groups

It is important that caregivers take time for themselves to become educated, get emotional support and meet others who are in similar situations. We offer many meetings at various times and locations. Check the list below, arranged by county, to see if there is a group close to you. If you have choices available, visit as many as possible to find the one that best fits your needs. Always be sure to call to confirm location, date and time of the meeting. If you cannot find a local support group for your area, please contact us. Also, for those individuals facing early stage Alzheimer’s or dementia, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment, we invite you to join our monthly Early Stage Memory Café for a social and educational experience at the Alzheimer’s Tennessee office (5801 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, 37919). Please call Linda Johnson, (865)544-6288, to register or get more information.
