Psychosocial support services for carers are limited; however, where these services are offered, for example, they are in the form of support groups by Alzheimer’s South Africa (9 regions/8 provinces) and Dementia-SA (Western Cape province), as well as support services in the home environment in resource constrained settings by NGOs (Van Pletzen, 2013).
