Support Groups

Approximately seventy Caregiver Support Groups are currently meeting across the Western Carolina Chapter service area. These groups typically meet monthly and all are coordinated by trained volunteer facilitators. These groups are a lifesaver for many caregivers. A group of understanding friends experiencing similar struggles makes a world of difference to those who face this tremendous stress. Contact a Chapter near you for more information about local efforts since details may change.
