In conjunction with Hartford Healthcare Center for Healthy Aging and the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library will host its first Dementia Caregiver Support Group on Monday, June 15 at 1 p.m.
This group will meet monthly, online, the third Monday of the month, until it is safe to meet at the library.
Alzheimer’s Association caregiver support groups, conducted by trained facilitators, are a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to: develop a support system, exchange practical information on caregiving challenges and possible solutions, talk through issues and ways of coping, share feelings, needs and concerns, and learn about community resources.
Those interested in attending should call Patty O’Brian, CDP, dementia specialist, from Hartford Healthcare Center for Healthy Aging, at 860-628-3833.
