Caregiver Support Group
Each month we conduct a support group for those who are caregivers of someone with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia. This support group is a great opportunity for caregivers to get together and discuss some of the daily issues and challenges that they face.
This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m.
This group is certified by the Alzheimer's Association. Please share this information with anyone that you know that might benefit from these meetings.
This month our meeting will be Tuesday,November 7th at 9 a.m.
Grief Support Group
The grief of losing someone that you love cannot be known until you are placed in that situation. Everyone experiences grief in their own way. There is no right or wrong in grieving. We have a Grief Support Group that meets the second Tuesday of each month.
Our group is designed to bring people together who share a common experience – the loss of a loved one. Whether it has been 2 months or 5 years, the pain of loss can still be very intense. If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one, please join us for a strictly confidential meeting to share feelings and offer support.
The meeting this month is on Tuesday, November 14th at 10 a.m.
Parkinson's Support Group
Education is power, especially when you are dealing with your health. There are many myths and misconceptions about PD and its treatments. If you or someone that you know has been diagnosed with PD, you are encouraged to join our Parkinson's support group that meets the first Friday Morning of each month at 10:00. We have educational material available about PD. Join others to learn more about the disease and how they have learned to deal with it. Our meeting will be Friday, November 3rd at 10:00 am.
