SUPPORT GROUP FOR CAREGIVERS OF THOSE WITH ALZHEIMERS’ DISEASE TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2017, 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 September 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.

Love cats?? Super flexible & fun volunteer opportunity

Are you looking for a way to help CATSS that doesn't involve giving money? Our annex location near downtown, where the bigger kittens and cats go when they can no longer stay at Ginko, could really, really use volunteers!

Twice each day, somebody needs to visit this location and do the necessary, unglamorous duties of cleaning the cages (including scooping litter boxes) and making sure everybody has food and fresh water.

Although there are 14 shifts per week, the timing on these is pretty flexible and we're happy to take any time you can give. If you can only come once per week, that's ok! Need to miss a week or two? We're flexible in that regard too. However, you must be reliable for the times that you do commit to and be able to work independently. You'll get plenty of alone time to play and cuddle with the kittens and cats in return for doing the dirty work of cleaning. And, you'll be doing CATSS a huge service by helping us out behind-the-scenes.

Occasionally you may have to give meds as well. We can train you on this if you're not sure.

Post or send CATSS a message via FB!: https://www.facebook.com/CommunityActionToSaveStrays/
