SUPPORT GROUP FOR CAREGIVERS OF THOSE WITH ALZHEIMERS’ DISEASE OR OTHER DEMENTIA

Tuesday June 26, 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 June 26th. 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.
