Caregiver support group

Can anyone suggest a caregiver of elderly parents support group in Charlotte, NC that is not Alzheimer's specific?

Helper,

Helper,

Welcome to our forum! Click on "Resources" at the top of this page. On the page you are taken to you will find "Agencies and Organizations" listed at the bottom of the list on the left. Some of these organizations offer support groups for caregivers of the elderly. The one that caught my eye was
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Children of Aging Parents (CAPS)
800-227-7294
Website: http://www.caps4caregivers.org

CAPS assists caregivers of the elderly with information and referrals, a network of support groups, and publications and programs that promote public awareness of the value and the needs of family caregivers.

Contact your local Agency on Aging and see if there is a caregiver support group in your area that is non-specific to Alzheimer's.

Interfaith Caregiver Support is a national group. I know there is one in Houston (my area). I notice websites from all over the country. If nothing else call one of their "hotlines" (using the local area code, not toll-free)

NFCA (CAN) staff at Phone: 301-942-6430 or e-mail caregiveractionnetwork.org will refer you to a CAN volunteer in your state that will know more about support groups for NC than I do.

Keep on posting and let us know how you are doing.

BTW, I am at odds with a 90 yr old father. I have a friend in another state in a similar situation I can talk to. Do you have a friend who is a "active" listener?

Love,
