All support groups

All Male Caregivers for Alzheimer Patients

I lead two such groups covering up to three years for one and have started to write a manual for men unable to locate a convenient all male group.

Help spread the support to more people in need -- Please tell a friend or two. Thanks!

My father, whom has dementia, has been living with my sister for the past 3 years. He has become so difficult to take care of that I need to consider an all male facility. Can you help with a recommendation or options.

Why can't I get my family to be more supportive of what Im trying to do. When I ask them for help they have all kinds of excuses. One excuse they use is that I made the decision to take care of mom . I felt I had no choice at the time. She is our mother not just my mother

I think a lot of us[male caregivers]are closeted: why....like it or not,it's not cool to say you're an adult man taking care of your mother. the same women that may find it commendable,aren't likely to see you as a potential sex partner,as well.....

What does it feel like to have dementia? A recent NYC meeting sponsored by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America included the Virtual Dementia Tour developed by P.K. Beville of Second Wind Dreams. How can we get the Alzheimer's Association Chapters to make it available to support groups? Let's spread the word! Gene Conrad

Today, "Guys who care: Male caregivers need special support" authored by Diane Lade appeared in the Sun Sentinel, a newpaper in South Florida. Dale Bruhn leads a male caregiver support group in Delray Beach. Now, we have three groups in Wisconsin, two in Conn. and at least one in Florida. Are there others? Gene Conrad
