FAIRBURY – The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, Feb. 27, at 6 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

            The program will be a DVD, “Caregivers,” about caring for people in different stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.  We will be watching Part 2. The program is designed so segments can be watched individually.

            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.
