Local LBD Support Groups

Seeking support? Connect with individuals, families and caregivers who are seeking support during life's challenging times. With support groups in over 30 states and internationally in Canada, connecting with other caregiver provides valuable and trusted resources and information for LBD families. We provide free, confidential support in a group setting to anyone affected by LBD—whether you are an LBD caregiver or are a loved one, friend, or professional caregiver of  someone diagnosed. 

If you are a loved one caring for a loved one and there is no local support group in your area or you can’t get to a support group meeting due to your caregiver responsibilities, please connect in our virtual support groups.
