The Connecticut chapter of The Alzheimer’s Association is hosting a Caregiver Support Group to help families and caregivers in caring for people with memory-related disorders. The gathering tomorrow will be at the Watermark at East Hill in Southbury--an independent living, assisted living, skilled rehabilitation retirement community.
Director of Health Services Denise Julian says the group helps educate caregivers on necessary skills for caring for people with Alzheimer's. She notes that every meeting is different with spouses, children and siblings sharing personal concerns and issues.
Julian says they also provide emotional support and problem solving solutions related to giving care.
The group meets the last Wednesday of every month from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. The Caregiver Support Group is free of charge and open to the public, however reservations are required. Please RSVP by calling The Watermark at East Hill at 203-262-6868.
