Newly Forming Alzheimer’s Care Community Support Groups in Palm Beach County
October is here and their are newly forming Alzheimer’s Care Community Support Groups starting in Palm Beach County. The Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center, a not-for-profit organization that serves as the first point of contact for Alzheimer’s caregivers, facilitates more than 25 Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Groups for the entire Alzheimer’s care community.
During the month of October, caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can attend a newly formed group or any of the other support groups located in Palm Beach County.
Find an Alzheimer’s Support Group
For caregivers that aren’t sure how to choose the best support group, the geriatric care managers at the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center can help you find the best Alzheimer’s Support Group for you. Caregivers that are dealing with challenges that come in the advanced stage of the disease have far different needs than those that are struggling with issues that a mid-stage patient may be experiencing.
In addition to the weekly and monthly support groups that are available throughout Palm Beach County, there are additional groups that help to meet the needs of the entire Alzheimer’s Care Community. This includes evening support groups; support groups just for men; telephone support groups; a support group for teens; and newly forming Alzheimer’s Online Support Group.
Alzheimer’s Coaching and Education
The October Alzheimer’s Support Group Calendar will give you the dates and times of some of the groups available. However, please call the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center directly at 877-760-9199 to speak with a Care Manager who can guide you in selecting the best group for you!
For caregivers that are not able to attend a caregiver support group, the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center also offers a wonderful program called Coaching for Caregivers! This program, which is free to first time callers, provides caregivers with some of the benefits of attending a support group, but on a more personalized one-on-one session. It also includes education and information.
