Support groups are an important place for caregivers—family members, friends, or helpers—to meet and share information, give and receive mutual support, and exchange coping strategies in relation to caring for a person with memory loss. Trained leaders help members learn ways of dealing with the problems they encounter as caregivers.
In conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association, NYC Chapter, an evening group is held at the New York Memory Center. The group meets twice a month on the first and third Thursdays. This group is facilitated by Michelle Laguerre, LMSW, and sessions are free.
