Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group

Date: Monday, July 14, 2014

The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, July 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room at Cedarwood assisted living, 828 22nd St., Fairbury. The meeting room can be accessed by entering the main entrance of Cedarwood, and turning left after the lobby. The meeting room is the first room on the right past the restrooms.

            The program will be Part 3 of “Making Visits Valuable,” with presenter Teepa Snow, a video featuring information on dealing with visits to people with dementia and dealing with challenging behaviors. (Parts I and II have been shown in May and June, but new participants are welcome to watch Part 3 without having seen Parts 1 and 2.)

            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.
