Support groups, especially for those with loved ones who have dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other forms of memory loss offer education, information and friendships.  Having a personal diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or having a loved one diagnosed is a lonely feeling.  The knowledge that it isn’t going to get better, only progress is frightening.  Individuals and family members dealing with these types of diseases need a great deal of support, compassion and empathy.  It’s like a receiving a cancer diagnosis, except there will never be a cure and the hope for recovery is non-existent.
