To access a caregivers support group that may be a fit for you in your community check with local sources who usually host such caregiver support groups or are at least aware of some. Places such as local churches who serve the community senior population, local hospitals who have community outreach and education, local senior facilities such as rehab centers, assisted living centers, or senior day centers and your local/county governmental agency serving seniors such as Agency on Aging. Another source who can sometimes advise of support groups in your area are national organizations on Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia (an example: the Alzheimer's Association). These can be identified online and often have state and local chapters with a listing of caregiver support groups in any given area with names and phone numbers available.
