ALS Caregivers Only Resource Support Group, Northern Virginia
ALS Association - DC/MD/VA Chapter
Who We Are
The Caregivers Only Resource Support Group is an essential tool in helping patients, families and caregivers live with ALS. This group for caregivers only is led by a professional who helps group members share their personal experiences and their knowledge of the disease. They learn they are not alone nor without help or hope. These group meetings are free and open to all caregivers regardless of where the patient is treated. They are designed to share information as well as strategies for preserving quality of life for caregivers and their family member with ALS.
These groups will occasionally offer speakers on relevant topics. This group meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 2PM until 4 PM.
