Support groups for family caregivers of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

The author discusses some assumptions, dilemmas, and questions that have come out of her experience in facilitating support groups for caregivers whose relatives have Alzheimer's disease, talking with other such facilitators around the country, reviewing the literature, and talking with group members themselves. Suggestions are made for a wider variety of support-group models, in recognition that caregivers have different needs.
