    Hi can anyone tell me how to find an support group face to face in Los angeles county. Thank you this would be for a patient who is still thinking about making the HD decision thanks.

    You might try calling some of the dialysis centers and talking to their social workers. They are usually a wonderful source of information. Good luck.

          I just called a social worker yesterday about support groups in the LA County. The ones that I was able to get were:

          Kidney Bean Support Group
          Downy, CA
          Karen Valles

          Baldwin Park, CA
          Gene Bonnett

          Gardina, CA

          I hope this helps. I've also heard that Kaiser Permanente hosts different support groups (including the kidney bean group) and educational seminars.
