Alzheimer's Care Resource Center Gathering Place West Palm BeachAlzheimer’s Caregiver Support Groups

Caring for someone that has Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive impairment is hard.  Our support groups are attended by caregivers who are struggling with all kinds of different challenges and emotions.

Our West Palm Beach area Alzheimer’s caregiver support groups are different! Our caregivers are able to come together and share in a warm, relaxed and nurturing environment. We also offer a monthly telephone support group for all Alzheimer’s caregivers who are either unable to attend in person, or live out of State.

Alzheimer's Support Groups Palm Beach CountyWhat are Alzheimer’s support groups?

Connecting with others who have the same kinds of struggles as you do is an important part of coping with Alzheimer’s disease. Groups are facilitated by trained professionals or former family caregivers, whose primary purpose is to provide knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease while allowing members to receive emotional support and encouragement from others in a similar situation. Some meet weekly, biweekly and monthly.

Who attends Alzheimer’s support groups?

People of all ages, races, genders, education levels and backgrounds. Although many members join when they are feeling overwhelmed and uncertain, people who attend groups tend to be strong individuals who are looking to gain the best support available for themselves and their families and who want to learn about the disease, and prepare for the future. It also allows an opportunity for participants to help each other deal with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

Why attend an Alzheimer’s support group?

While attending a group is not the solution for all, it can be a vital part of maintaining the health and well-being of both caregiver and patient. Groups provide vital education about managing dementia care that reduces stress for all involved. Research has shown that attending a support group can not only reduce caregiver stress, but improve the functioning of people with Alzheimer’s, keep them living at home longer, and assisting in managing difficult behaviors that may arise.

Many people don’t attend a group because they think they are depressing or someplace you go if you can’t cope. But the opposite is true! Groups help you cope. Studies have found that the least depressed caregivers attend a group. And group members themselves have often found that while the group is a good place to cry if you need to, it is also a great place to laugh.
