Caregiver Support Groups in Alaska

Support groups provide a way for people with a common experience to help and learn from each other. They can be an important source of social and emotional support, as well as a great way to see what works for others and learn about local services. All groups below are free to join.

Many groups below are available statewide over the phone or via Zoom. For this reason, most people find it helpful to identify groups with days and times that work best with their schedule regardless of location.

In addition to the groups below we also offer Mind Matters, an education and support program for individuals with early memory loss.

You might also be interested in our Facebook support group. This is a closed group and you will be required to request access to join.
