A new caregiver support group based in Milwaukee and sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association is welcoming attendees. The group’s first meeting will be held on Friday, April 5 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care – Bucyrus Campus, 2450 W. North Avenue in Milwaukee. The support group will meet regularly on the first Friday of every month.
The 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 Alzheimer’s Association at 800.272.3900.
