Important note regarding LBD Support Groups during the COVID-19 crisis: Many of our groups meet in senior facilities/healthcare locations and have cancelled their meetings. Most are cancelling in-person meetings and may be meeting via phone/video conferencing. Contact the Support Group Facilitator if you have any questions/concerns about a particular group at this time. In addition, support is just a click away when you connect with others in an online community (Virtual Support Groups tab).
Seeking support? Connect with individuals, families and caregivers who are seeking support during life’s challenging times. With support groups in over 30 states, 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.
To find a support group in your local area, select your state’s two letter abbreviation from the drop down menu and click apply. (If no groups are listed, consider launching one in your community. Click here to become a volunteer.)
