"Our caregiver support groups are meetings where the loved ones of people with dementia can go to get emotional support, suggestions and ideas from other people who are walking a similar path. At the Alzheimer's Association, we want caregivers to know that they do not have to face this disease alone, "said Rebecca Hall, Director of Care and Support for the Alzheimer's Association.
