support groups on Facebook 

Over 46,000 folks are members of the 3 groups that I participate in. Each post is from an individual. Dementia is the common ground of the groups. Most posts are from caregivers in various stages of the part of their life, that includes dementia. 

My awareness is raised as I read, not only the posts, but also the comments, to the posts. 

Some comments are about family and friends that no longer call or visit. 

Many of the members no longer have a personal connection to dementia, but stay around to help others. 

On many occasions, I have read problems stated and solutions presented. There is a lot of knowledge spread out among these members.
