Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group

Date: Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Location:  Jefferson Community Health Center

FAIRBURY – The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Tuesday, May 28, at 6:30 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

            The program will be a continuation of a series of DVDs, “The Memory Loss Tapes,” a documentary capturing the experience of memory loss from the point of view of the person with the disease. The group is watching segments of the program which are stand alone videos.

            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.
