Insight: Caregiver Support Groups


Taking care of a spouse or parent with Alzheimer’s means you’re rarely alone but you’re constantly isolated. Caregiving can keep you from living a normal life and participating in activities other people take for granted. And that’s why caregivers find support groups to be such an important source of strength and assistance.

In the lead up to the airing of Capital Public Radio’s latest documentary “Who Cares,” Insight is focusing on different aspects of caregiving. Thursday, the Regional Director for Greater Sacramento Office of the Alzheimer’s Association joins us to talk about caregiver support groups. The documentary “Who Cares” airs Friday morning at 9:00 in place of Insight.
