Caregiver Training

Support Group for Individuals Who Suffer from a Memory Disorder, Wednesday, September 6 (will meet the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each month), 10:30-11:30 a.m., FREE!
 

Whenever facing difficult times, having a good support network you can turn to for advice and encouragement may help you feel socially connected and give you a sense of belonging and purpose. Connecting with others like you may help put your own experiences living with the disease in perspective, and provide you with the support and encouragement necessary to move beyond your diagnosis. These groups are designed for persons with mild memory loss due to Early Stage Alzheimer’s or related disorder. Separate, concurrent groups for family members are available. Meet others in similar situations and share strategies for living with Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder. Groups are led by compassionate, professional facilitators. Prescreening is required prior to enrollment and receiving group meeting details. Please contact Crystal Collier 772-223-7843 for prescreening.
