Caregiver Support


Being a caregiver is hard work, especially if it is for an extended period of time.   Unfortunately, caregiving often falls on the shoulders of a select few (often just one person) despite the number of family members and friends available – burnout is inevitable especially without backup or support.

Seek out as much help as you can get.  I hope these caregiver resources prove beneficial.


Massachusetts Family Caregiver Support Program

Hope Health Dementia and Alzheimers Services


A Cape Cod support group for individuals with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

Provides an opportunity for caregivers to participate in a support group that focuses on providing education, support, and respite while the individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias whom they care for meet separately in a group that provides conversation and socialization.
