A newly–formed support group based in Whitefish Bay and sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association is welcoming attendees. The group’s next meeting will be held on Thursday, February 21st from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 819 E. Silver Spring Drive, in Whitefish Bay. The support group will meet regularly on the third Thursday of every month.
A support group is designed to provide an open forum for caregivers or family members to voice their concerns and ask questions about Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. In addition to the emotional, educational and social support provided, the regularly scheduled meetings also allow participants to develop methods and skills to solve problems.
The support group is open to family members or caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. There is no cost to attend. For more information, please contact the support group facilitator, Richard Whitaker at 414-964-2424 extension 121.
