Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group

Date: Monday, October 24, 2011 Time: 6:00 pm Contact: Lana LikensPhone: 729-6855

The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

        The program will be Part 7 of a DVD, “The Memory Loss Tapes,” a documentary that captures the experience of memory loss from the point of view of the person with the disease. The program is divided into segments, so it will be meaningful even for those who did not view the previous parts of the documentary.

        Please note this is an evening meeting, and is earlier than the last few months because of it getting dark earlier in the fall. If you are interested in attending the support group, but find the evening of the fourth Monday of the month doesn’t work out, please let me know. We will work with meeting times to try to include the majority of those interested in attending.

        A support group is a gathering of people with common problems, needs and interests which allows them to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to survive the shared problems. It may include family members, caregivers, friends and other individuals interested in sharing information and giving and receiving support.

        Those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease themselves are also welcome to attend the meetings.

        The support group is open to anyone interested in attending. There is no charge and no membership commitment. No pre-registration is necessary. This group typically meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 3 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

        For more information, please contact Lana Likens at 729-6855.
