Even if you’ve never belonged to a support group before, consider finding a support group for caregivers, or one that is specific to your situation. For instance, there are groups for people with strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, AIDS and many others.

For many caregivers, support groups offer a chance to share feelings honestly, without having to be strong or put up a brave front for the family. Even if you’re “not the type” to share your feelings with people you don’t know, you will learn from other members of the group, people who’ve “been there” and may be going through the same adjustments. Call your local hospital or crisis hotline to find out about support groups in your area. Every group is different, so if the first group you attend doesn’t appeal to you, try a different group. No one understands as well as a fellow caregiver.
