Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Group

Our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Group is a resource for those who have a loved one who suffers with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, or who are caregivers for loved ones dealing with the disease. You are not alone.

An Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Group meets at Blue Grass Church on the 2nd Monday of each month, from 2-3 pm. The group meets at our Main Campus in Room 1001.

This group provides emotional, educational, and social support for the family and friends of individuals with middle to later stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, and other related dementias.

Our Lay Counselor, Beth Boling, facilitates the group.

When it’s not possible to be at one of our local programs in person, take advantage of the online opportunities. A wealth of information and topics are available 24 hours a day HERE.

May Alzheimer’s Support Group Meeting
The next Alzheimer’s Support Group meeting will be on Monday, May 14th at 2:00pm in the Hospitality Room at our Main Campus. Lindsey Boots, OTD/L and Branch Manager of Caregiver Homes will be coming to talk to us about Structured Family Caregiving. This is a state mandated program that offers clinical case management and a financial stipend to individuals caring for loved ones in their home who meet certain qualifications. The program was developed to help keep loved ones at home and cared for by their families for as long as it’s safe to do so with the assistance of nursing, social work and financial support.

For questions regarding the meeting, please contact Joni Bitzer.
