Caregiver Support Groups

Effective immediately- Support Groups Meeting Via Phone Only:

Due to precautions surrounding COVID-19, we will not be meeting in person for our Grace Place Support Groups.  

Since we can't meet in person right now, all those wishing to join one of the Grace Place Caregiver Support Groups at their regularly scheduled times may do so by phone!  As part of our partnership with the Alzheimer's Association, we will be able to continue to offer support to those caring for someone living with dementia.  This new "Blue Jeans" style of meeting allows caregivers to continue to connect with one another for support.  All meetings will take place by telephone.  Advance registration is required in order to be able to call in the day of the support group.

In order to register, a caregiver only need call the Alzheimer's Associations helpline at (800) 272-3900. Please let them know you would like to register for the upcoming Grace Place Support Group in San Antonio.

Until futher notice, support groups will meet via the phone on their regularly scheduled days and times of the second and fourth Saturdays of the month (May 9 and May 23).  Registration is very easy to do and we look forward to serving our caregivers during this time with these support services.  Please keep in mind that space is limited in these groups so the sooner you can register the better!

The Alzheimer’s Association has so many resources available online including caregiver blogs, a 24/7 support helpline (800) 272-3900 and more please visit alz.org for more information.
 

Grace Place Alzheimer’s Activity Centers partner with the Alzheimer’s Association to provide additional resources for caregivers. Monthly support groups are held to provide education and peer-support to individuals who are caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.  

 
Staff are also up-to-date on additional local events and trainings offered within the Alzheimer’s and dementia community and able to refer family members, friends, and caregivers to these services, helping to better navigate this difficult journey.
 
Typically support groups are held at our Grace Place locations which are closed during this time. Please continue to check this website for information, or join our email list to be among the first to hear about any changes in the status.
