Helping Children to Understand Grandpa's Alzheimer's

Finding a support group

In these groups, they will touch many subjects on the matter of Alzheimer’s, including the guilt that the children may feel as a result of their family member going through such pain and strife. Similarly, they might also feel ashamed of their grandpa’s behavior, which is a topic that also needs to be addressed. Lastly, the children’s own questions about their grandpa’s condition, as well as their new and growing concerns as they mature will also be a topic of interest in these groups.
