“We are committed to enhancing the services we provide in the area of dementia care because we know the need is great,” said Glenmeadow President and CEO Anne Thomas. “Our goal is to provide support and peace of mind. These gatherings provide an important social outlet, and right now we need social connections more than ever.”
Caregivers Support Group, for both professionals and family members who are assisting someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, offers information and support. It is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about dementia and to understand their individual feelings about the life changes associated with it.
The group is open to the public; Zoom meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at noon, and in-person meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month at Glenmeadow at noon.
The Caregivers Support Group will meet:
October 6 from noon to 1 p.m. (Zoom)
October 13 from noon to 1 p.m. (in person)
November 3 from noon to 1 p.m. (Zoom)
November 10 from noon to 1 p.m. (in person)
