Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group

Date: Monday, November 28, 2011 Time: 6:00 pm

FAIRBURY – The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, Nov. 28, at 6 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

        The program will be a video, “Short-Circuiting Stress.” Caregivers deal with stress all the time, and the holiday season brings stress of its own. With the video and sharing and discussion, the group will discuss the best ways to deal with stress.

        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.

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