For many individuals with Alzheimer’s and their care partners, support groups provide significant comfort and practical help in coping with the disease. Alzheimer’s Tennessee trains facilitators at partner locations and coordinates area meetings that serve as important sources of information as well as outlets for feelings and frustrations.
Alzheimer’s Tennessee offers over 40 caregiver support groups. There are several groups specifically geared for certain groups such as male caregivers, early onset Alzheimer’s caregivers, those caring for someone living with Frontotemporal Dementia, and individuals with early stage dementia. Additionally, some host sites offer respite care for the person diagnosed with dementia if needed in order for caregivers to attend the meeting.
