The internet offers many opportunities for caregivers to connect online, discuss issues, and get support. Online support groups take on different forms, including chat rooms, discussion groups, email groups (knowns also as "listservs"), Facebook groups, etc. Some caregiving websites provide online support groups that are staffed by trained professionals, and others are run by caregivers who are simply interested in helping others. Usually, participation is free of charge, and no special software is needed. Some sites require you to register before you begin to participate in the group.
