Description: Support groups provide information and emotional support for persons with a specific disease (for example, Alzheimer’s disease) or special concern, and/or for their family and caregivers.
How to Get Support Group Services: Contact the support group directly or call PGCSC's Central Intake, Screening and Referral line:
(800) 293-9393 or (520) 836-2758
WE ARE CURRENTLY HOLDING VIRTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS BY PHONE OR COMPUTER. Although we are maintaining our normal Support Group schedule as listed below, PGCSC takes this opportunity to invite all caregivers, regardless of their geographical location to join in our virtual meetings. These meetings are a great opportunity to break down physical location and offer information, resources, support and hope to our caregivers. Call 520-836-2758 or 1-800-293-9393 for more information on how to connect to our virtual support groups. Location is no longer a barrier to connecting with others on their care giving journey.
