Anyone familiar with Alzheimer's Disease and related
disorders (ADRD) knows the significant impact it can have on family
members of the impaired person, especially the primary caregiver. At
the onset of the illness, only those close to the person with
Alzheimer's disease may begin to notice slight behaviour changes
which they may not understand. The afflicted person may become
forgetful, quick tempered or withdrawn. As the disease progresses
these behavioural changes become more pronounced, and by the time
diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is made, the family may feel
frustrated, alone and trapped.
Support groups help families and
caregivers of an impaired person maintain and
increase feelings of self-worth and control by
sharing common problems. Through trained and
competent leadership, members of the group can
experience emotional relief, develop greater
self-awareness and understanding, and acquire
new and more positive attitudes. People learn to
share problems, and help each other to cope more
effectively in a safe caring environment. Groups
help people to form new and meaningful
relationships, and make them aware of various
community services. By working together, people
feel less helpless. Support Groups provide a
forum to learn and understand how to cope with
and care for people with Alzheimer's disease and
