Alzheimer’s Support Group

NYU offers a support group for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Facilitated by an Alzheimer’s Association trained group leader, the group will provide a consistent and caring place to discuss the challenges of care giving, share feelings and concerns, and find emotional support. Group members may also exchange information and educate themselves about dementia. The group meets weekly on the Washington Square campus from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, and is limited in size to help ensure full participation by all group members. If you have questions and/or are interested in becoming a member, please send an email for consideration and prescreening.
