Support Group on Zoom
We are going to try our support group today on Zoom. Given some of our members this should be interesting. Someone asked how we could have support group without my cookies, so I emailed everyone a cookie
Correct although our support group is about as "information tight" as a wicker basket.
Zoom is great. Do you have a real account with them or just the
Our support group will meet this week via Zoom also. We’ve also stepped up our meeting frequency from monthly to every two weeks to reflect the greater challenges we all face.
It’s tough living in the time of COVID-19. But how much tougher would it have been 20 years ago, without the technology available to us today.
Is this a private group?
It’s an IRL group.
Over my head. What is a IRL group?
I guess al you folks are in Maryland.
I will be there next year but to far away from you folks as I am
all the way on the north side.
I am not part of your existing group, but I'm really interested in joining a Zoom support group. Do you know if there's one available for new people?
I am not in Maryland, Michael.
There are numerous sponsors/facilitators of support groups. Your local chapter of your Alzheimer’s Association will have some information about support groups near you. Some churches and some social welfare organizations and state health departments may be other resources that sponsor or can put you in touch with support groups.
Is it possible to join your Zoom group? I’m in Michigan with DH who has Alz. Thanks for any info you can give me!
I think your best option is to contact the Michigan Alz Assn chapter to get looped into local support groups. That’s because a significant part of the benefit of a local support group is to share information about resources of various kinds in your area—agencies, day care facilities, regional or county programs, and so on.
