I have attended two support groups for PD caregivers over the years but neither have addressed my need for emotional support or provided opportunities to articulate and address the emotional issues that naturally arise. One group focused mainly on problem-solving behavioral issues, which was useful for some who were grappling with severe dementia. The other used a positive psychology approach of encouraging us to look on the bright side of our lives, which I found a total waste of time. I would like to create a group where people feel free to be authentic and real, safe to-honestly describe how they feel and address failures as well as strengths. They would, of course, have the gift of others who can empathize with their experiences and share coping strategies as well as concerns. If you belong to a support group that actually feels supportive, I would appreciate advice on know and where it was formed, and what has been necessary to maintain interest and investment in the group. Thank you!
