Is anyone aware of a support group which focuses on patients who suffer from Korsakoff's psychosis?
The support for Korsakoff's on the patient.info suggests support generally only from alcohol groups - which deals with the alcohol dependency aspect. But the other, and totally separate, aspect of the illness is the physical brain damage which presents as memory loss, cognitive impairment and confabulation.
A support group for that latter aspect would assist by perhaps discussion of a CRT pathway to help develop implicit and explicit strategies to help the patient develop an improved level of independence (and, co-incidentally, self-esteem)
