    If you are caring for a loved one with any other type of illness or disability, there are hundreds of other community support groups available throughout NJ. Here’s a listing of just the “caregiver” support groups, from parents of children with special disorders or needs, to “well spouses” caring for their partner, to adult children caring for an elderly frail relative:

    To learn about any of the thousands of community support groups in NJ, or for free help in learning how to join with others to start a needed new support group in your area, call the NJ Self-Help Group Clearinghouse group information helpline, 1-800-367-6274,
    more easily remembered as 1-800-FOR-M.A.S.H. (Mutual Aid Self-Help). Or outside NJ, call 973-989-1122.
