Monday, October 22nd. Alzheimer’s & Dementia Caregiver Support Group meets in the Senior Center Library from 9:00 – 10:30 A.M Often times, we hear caregivers say they are looking for support from people who "really understand because they've been there, too." An Alzheimer's/Dementia Caregiver Support Group offers just that – a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet and develop a mutual support system. It's a place to: Exchange practical information on caregiving problems and possible solutions; Talk through challenges and ways of coping; Share feelings, needs and concerns; Learn about resources available in your community; Our support group is facilitated by a trained individual. The Alzheimer’s Association has an excellent book on Dementia & Alzheimer’s, I believe it’s $25 if your interested you can contact Norma Featherston at 805-484-6028
