USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Center and Research Institute

Support Groups

Support Groups enable those suffering memory loss and/or caregivers an opportunity to share their fears, worries and successes with others experiencing similar circumstances. The Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute hosts monthly support groups free of charge for members of our Tampa community (regardless of your physician choice). Please see below for a list of Support Group descriptions. These meetings are confidential and non-clinical (e.g. no diagnosis of conditions). Solicitation from outside businesses is not permitted.

Registration is not required and new participants are always welcome.

For more information please call 813-396-0722.
