Online Caregiver Support Groups
Whether you are a new caregiver, a veteran caregiver (been at it for several years), or a caregiver in transition (e.g., the person you care for is now in a nursing home), there is a support group here for you. Some are list serves, some have chats, some have instant messaging. Many people say that they like online support groups because of the ability to access it at their convenience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some also note that the anonymity of an online group makes them feel more comfortable speaking candidly.
