Weekly on Wednesdays
Alzheimers Support Group

This program offers a safe and comfortable environment for participants to receive cognitive, physical, and social interaction with others. A benefit to this group is that participants are either currently experiencing the same thing as the other group members, have previously experienced them, or just wish to listen to others’ experiences.

One participant states: “The most important thing to me is the opportunity to be with others in my situation and having the opportunity to learn from them and giving them the opportunity to learn from me as well.

Not only will the individual experiencing early memory loss benefit in many ways from this support group, but it is also great for the caregiver, since the class provides a safe and educational environment for their loved ones to attend each week.

The participants of the class will learn many different coping skills and more effective ways to deal with being diagnosed with a dementia-related disease.

There is a $15 weekly fee for this class.

Please join us for discussions, exercise, fun, new friends, speakers, music, and so much more!
