New caregivers’ support group

A new Caregiver’s Support Group is being formed with the first meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, March 1, at Grace United Methodist Church.

The noon meeting, held on the third Monday of the month, has been well-received and this additional group meeting allows for more flexible scheduling for those needing a later meeting time.

The format of the meeting will be very similar to the noontime meeting and will include information about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It is open to any caregivers in the area, as well as those interested in learning more about these diseases, and educational programs being held locally. Time is allowed for sharing of concerns, questions, and suggestions for topics for future meetings. Tentative plans for this first meeting include the video presentation from the Alzheimer’s Project, originally produced by HBO. Many informational books and materials are available. Those attending are asked to enter the building via the elevator entrance from the church parking lot to the first floor.

For further information contact Karen at 723-9440 or Linda at 726-1199.

On Thursday, March 1, Rita Moniot from the Starbrick Family Church will share the message, and Buddy Ward from North Warren Presbyterian Church will be liturgist. First UM Church will provide the music, and St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church will serve the lunch.
