Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Support Groups - Ventura County

Right at Home of Ventura County is a strong advocate of support groups. These groups present a forum for family caregivers to share their stories, express their frustration and doubts in an environment that provides emotional support to the participants who are quite vulnerable. We facilitate two groups. One of our participants, Lyle Holchbacher, lost his lovely wife Mary to Alzhiemer's disease a couple of years ago. As a retired engineer, Lyle made a comprehensive list of all the tasks he performed to take care of Mary's estate. Lyle found that the articles and other resources he consulted, while helpful, didn't cover the entirety of his needs. He would like to share his list with anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation, and Right at Home of Ventura county is pleased to assist by providing access on our website.

Right at Home owner Phil Chandler facilitates and participates in support groups for people impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and Heart Disease. He facilitates two Alzheimer’s support groups, one for families with early stage Alzheimer’s Disease, and the other for family caregivers with a loved one with more advanced Alzheimer’s Disease:
