Support Groups in Reno, NV Buoy Caregiver Morale

As a family caregiver in Reno, NV, do you experience fatiguestress or depression? Do you feel physically, emotionally or mentally drained? Is your appetite changing? Are you losing weight, getting sick more often or finding it hard to get enough sleep? These are all symptoms of caregiver burnout, according to WebMD.

“The good news is that you’re not alone,” reported an article on Helpguide.org. “Remember that old adage, ‘trouble shared is trouble halved?’ A caregiver support group is one way to share your troubles. Seek out people who are going through the same experiences that you are living each day. If you can’t leave the house, many Internet services are available.”

    I am looking for support groups for Alzhiemers and Dementia in the Reno NV area on the weekends for my mom and dad. They are taking care of my grandmother and it is getting really bad after two and a half years. I feel they need to talk to others in simular situations to get support. Can you please help?

    I have a friend who is the only caregiver for her adult disabled child. It is really getting her down. Is there a group that could help her? Thanks.
