SUPPORT GROUP FOR CAREGIVERS OF THOSE WITH ALZHEIMERS’ DISEASE

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2018 2:00 to 3:30pm If you’re a caregiver for someone suffering from Alzheimers’ Disease or some other form of dementia, this group may be of interest and of help to you. The group will be facilitated by staff and volunteers of the Alzheimers’ Association, but will be “user-run”. If you’re a caregiver, your experiences - successful and otherwise - are important and valid and may be of help to other caregivers, as theirs may be for you. Sharing experiences is one of the best ways to learn to be a more effective and successful caregiver. Caregiver stress is well-documented to be a contributing factor for a variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, anger, social withdrawal, sleep disturbance, and problems with mood and concentration. Managing one’s stress may help reduce these problems, and make one a more effective - and happier - caregiver. The group meets at the First Church in Oberlin, at the corner of N. Main and W. Lorain Streets, on the fourth Tuesday of every month, from 2:00 to 3:30pm. Please join us next on February 27th. If you have any questions about this group, or about Alzheimers’ Disease or the Alzheimers’ Association, please call the local Association office, at 800-272-3900.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Oberlin Weekday Community Meals provides a hot and nutritious dinner to any and all, at Christ Episcopal Church, 162 South Main Street, every Monday through Friday. Volunteers are needed to help set up, serve, and then clean up following dinner. Dinner is served from 5:00 to 5:30, but we ask that volunteers be available from roughly 4:45 until roughly 6:00. No heavy lifting is involved, and volunteers are invited to join in the meal themselves. We are hopeful for volunteers who are able to commit to a regular once-a-week schedule, but any help you can provide will be welcome. If you are interested in providing needed assistance to your community, please contact the Christ Church office at 775-2501 or communitymeals440@gmail.com
