Resource Groups

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter hosts Resource/Support Groups throughout our service region to provide an opportunity for patients, caretakers, families and friends to be mutually supportive, exchange practical information, and share their experiences. We also provide resource groups specifically for caregiver and bereavement support.

All resource groups are free of charge for patients, caregivers and family members.

All resource groups (with the exception of the Bereavement Group, which is open to those who have recently lost a loved one) are open to current patients, and family and friends of current patients, unless otherwise noted. If your loved one has passed away, and you would like to stay connected with the Chapter/ALS Community, please check out the section Local Events or contact a staff member for more information on volunteering and other ways of staying active within the Chapter. Thank you!

RSVP means that you will let us know if you are coming so that we can let you know if the group is cancelled or rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances.*

*Please note: our Delaware and Wilkes Barre groups have been cancelled as of January 1, 2018.
