Support groups are beneficial for caregivers in countless ways. Not only do they pull you out of isolation and give you a break from your caregiving duties, but they give you the opportunity to talk to others who are in similar situations and understand what you do on a daily basis. Having validation from others helps you understand that you are not alone and that your feelings and concerns are normal. Attending support groups also is a great way to get advice, learn more about Alzheimer’s, and gain access to other resources. You also have the chance to share your frustrations and relieve some stress. And, you’ll appreciate learning from other’s experiences in caring for someone with the disease.
