Mat-Su Valley Support Group

Support groups provide a way for people with a common experience to help and learn from each other. They can be an important source of social and emotional support, as well as a great way to see what works for others and learn about local services. All groups below are free to join.

View our full list of Caregiver Support Groups in Alaska here: https://www.alzalaska.org/caregiver-support-groups-throughout-alaska/
Most of these groups are available statewide over the phone or Zoom. For this reason, most people find it helpful to identify groups with days and times that work best with your schedule regardless of location.

Free to attend! Registration required, please contact Kim to register. Share with friends and family
