About

The Alzheimer's Association is looking for volunteers who are interested in creating a support group in the Pikeville area. There is a significant need for a support group in Pikeville and we are hoping to find volunteers who would like to spend a little time once a month to provide an avenue for individuals affected by Alzheimer's disease to discuss and share the challenges they face.

A support group provides a safe, supportive environment to allow family members, friends, caregivers, and other interested individuals to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to Alzheimer’s disease. All support groups are free and open to the public and of no religious affiliation unless otherwise designated.

We encourage support group volunteers to hold the meetings in community organizations such as senior centers, churches, community centers, etc.

**A volunteer cannot be a current caregiver.
