Support Groups

As a caregiver, family member or friend of someone who has Alzheimer’s disease, you may feel overwhelmed and frustrated. Often it helps to talk with someone who really understands what you are going through, someone who knows just how you feel. You can meet that someone at the Alzheimer’s Support Group.

Alzheimer’s Arkansas, through its support groups and presentations, strives to:

  • Provide the opportunity for self expression
  • Assist in identifying and locating resources
  • Collaborate with other organizations to improve services
  • Remove the stigma associated with dementia
  • Promote Hope and Optimism

Support Group Facilitator Training: The next facilitator training will be scheduled for August 8, 2014. For additional information contact Priscilla Pittman at 501-224-0021.
