Registration is not required.

Description

The Alzheimer's support group is a gathering of family, friends, and caregivers of individuals that suffer from Alzheimer's disease and other related forms of dementia.  These meetings allow for the exchange of caregiving ideas and coping skills, and provide social interaction with others in similar situations. As members get to know one another, they often form friendships that extend beyond the boundaries of the support group.

The support group is facilitated by a member of HOMEWARD staff who moderates the interactions amongst the group members.  This group can be a support network for those affected by Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. 

Dates and Times

This group meets the first Tuesday of every month at 1 p.m. in the Diabetes and Nutrition Education Center (located on the third floor of the North Addition of the medical center) in Classroom #2.

Call 515-239-6730 or 800-529-4610 for more information.
