Support Groups


  • Exchange practical information on care-giving problems and possible solutions

  • Talk through challenges and ways of coping

  • Share feelings, needs and concerns

  • Learn about resources available in your community

Many caregivers find it helpful to talk with others who are also caregivers in a group setting.  It gives them a chance to vent to people who understand and build relationships with other caregivers.  There are numerous caregiver support groups around the state that meet at different times and in different locations.  The Care2Caregiver staff can help you find one that works for your schedule and is in your area. 

The Care2Cargivers Staff and the COPSA Staff offer several support groups including the Spouse Support Group, Just for the Fellas, Transitions Bereavement Group, Caregiver Education Groups and Young Wives. 

The COPSA Spouse Support Group
The COPSA Spouse Support Group is open to all who are caring for a spouse with memory impairment due to Alzheimer�s Disease or a related disorder.  We meet bimonthly to learn about the disease process, discuss issues that arise from caregiving, offer each other support and find out about available resources.  All meetings are facilitated by a member of the COPSA Care 2 Caregivers Staff.  We know how hard your job is.  Come and learn more about what your spouse is going through and talk with others who know what it is like to walk in your shoes.
