Support Groups

Diverse caregivers supporting each other

It is not unusual to feel isolated when you are devoting so much of your time to caring for a loved one. One valuable way to overcome these feelings is to talk with others who understand the stresses and challenges you are facing.

Johns Hopkins Bayview has partnered with several organizations in the surrounding community, including those that offer counseling and support groups. Examples include, but are not limited to:

 
Hopkins ElderPlus, with support from the Alzheimer’s Association, offers a group for caregivers who care for individuals diagnosed with dementia and other diseases. The group meets the second Thursday of each month from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. at Hopkins ElderPlus. The group is open to the public. Contact Tiffani Williams (410) 550-8093.

Club Memory is a stigma-free social club for people with early-stage Alzheimer's, mild cognitive impairment or other forms of dementia, and their spouses, partners and caregivers. The group meets on the third Tuesday of every month from 12 to 1 p.m. via Zoom. Phone information:
