Alzheimer’s Association Support Groups in NW Indiana

By: Alzheimer's Association Last Updated: October 14, 2009

Support groups meet monthly to provide caregivers with an opportunity to share their experiences and receive support from others coping with Alzheimer's disease. There is no cost or commitment to attend. You are encouraged to contact the group facilitator directly. If you have questions about support groups in general, please call the Helpline at 1-800-272-3900. If someone you know and care about is suffering from Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia, there is something you can do to help them and yourself.
