Support Group Information
Information about support groups is likely to change over time. If you find that any of our information is outdated, or you would like to share knowledge of other caregiver or eldercare -related groups please let us know! Email pwaaa@pwcgov.org or call 703-792-4583.
The care of an older family member or friend is often provided by relatives and friends. Caregiving can create physical, economic, and emotional stress. Groups of people experiencing similar issues provide a supportive atmosphere, information about community resources, as well as tips on how to prevent burnout.
 
Please contact a group’s hotline before attending a session for the first time to verify meeting information, obtain directions, and receive other information about the group.
