Support groups offer families and individuals with special healthcare needs with a safe place to get together to share concerns and solve problems about everyday issues that affect their lives. There are many condition specific organizations who provide groups for parents, loved ones and siblings. In addition, there are several groups in Delaware that provide support across disabilities or chronic health conditions.
