It is not out of the ordinary for older people to forget someone’s name or misplace things from time to time. However, getting confused in places a person knows well, forgetting how to get home, or asking the same questions over and over can be signs of a more serious problem; the person may be showing signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
The number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States is growing rapidly. Approximately 5.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease.
In our office, we see many clients who are either developing symptoms of Alzheimer’s or have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or some other form of Dementia. We also see the burden it often inflicts on their children or spouse who has become their caregiver.
For this reason, we have started a support group for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Our support group meets the second Thursday of every month from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm in our Garden City office (100 Quentin Roosevelt Blvd. Suite 102).
We welcome caregivers, friends and families of those with Alzheimer’s/Dementia to join us to share experiences, feelings and information. During these meetings, valuable caregiving information and community resources will be shared.
If you or anyone you know can benefit from our Alzheimer’s & Dementia Caregiver Support Group, please pass on the word! If you are interested in registering for our Support Group, please either register online through our calendar of events or contact Marissa at 526-633-1717.
