Aurora Caregiver Support Group ImageBeginning in August, Memorial Community Health, in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Association, will begin offering a monthly Alzheimer's/Dementia Caregiver Support Group meeting.

Meetings will be held the fourth Thursday of each month from 2:30-3:30 PM in the Memorial Hospital conference room and will be conducted by Memorial Community Health's social workers - Jennifer Heiden and Jessica Frenzen - who have been trained by the Alzheimer's Association as group facilitors.

The support group is 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, and learn about community resources. The first meeting is scheduled for August 24th. For more information, contact Jennifer or Jessica at 402-694-8260.
