Family Caregiver Alliance
  • FCA has partnered with Smart Patients to create this new Caregivers Community so that caregivers and other loved ones can join the community for free to share, interact, and learn from each other in a safe, supportive environment. And family caregivers of adults with chronic physical or cognitive conditions such as Alzheimer’s, stroke, Parkinson’s, and other illnesses can share their own expertise with this new community. By partnering with Smart Patients, we are helping empower caregivers to improve care for themselves and others. Caregiver Alliance
Well Spouse Association
  • Those who live in an area where there is no active WSA face-to-face support group can receive and give support through the printed word -- the WSA website with its stories and information; the WSA Online Forum; and a chat line for members. We can now offer another alternative -- a Telephone Support Group (TSG) -- a connection with their peers, that they can take advantage of once a month... All WSA Support Group participation requires Supporting Membership status but no one is turned away for lack of funds. -- This group meets one weekend afternoon each month. Contact TSG Leader in advance, for the phone number to call in on. Well Spouse Association
