Where are caregiver support groups in the Tampa Bay Area

I want to find groups that meet in the evening or on weekends as I work during the day. The only ones I have found are mid morning or mid afternoon and those don't fit into my schedule.

Stressed Lisa, alz Assoc alz dot org, provides free 24 hr support counseling service, has support groups and other resources. Go there, look up by zip or state/co., some are listed for evenings in the Tampa area. I went from 0-60 in a split second when I began caring for my mom, and really felt overwhelmed until I found AC site-many nice people, tons of proven experience! Plus avail 24/7. Still, local group helps w local referrals. Also web search area agency on aging go Tampa, call them for app't and advice, that's why they exist. This is so hard at first, but will find u can adjust and develop a routine or style of coping that will make things easier. Most patients DO deny diagnosis, and they can't be reasoned with. Just try to work around it the best u can. Read threads & topics in forum that relate to what u r dealing with. Hang in there N Stay in touch...
Check with Karen Truman or the Folks at Seasons Memory Care. They host a regular dementia support group for caregivers. They post the days and times on their site.
