Alzheimer's Disease Support Group

A support group for caregivers, family members, and friends of individuals suffering from Alzheimer's Disease or related memory loss disorders is being organized in DeKalb County.  Support group meetings are held for those who would benefit from interactions with other individuals who are having similar experiences in the care of loved ones diagnosed with Alzheimer's or related dementias.  The meetings will offer emotional support and discussion of important topics related to the care of individuals such as the care-giving techniques, coping strategies, behavioral aspects and legal issues.  The group will meet at the Heimach Center, 1800 E. Seventh St., Auburn, on the first Thursday of each month at 2:00pm.  It is sponsored by DeKalb County Council on Aging, DeKalb Memorial Hospital, DeKalb County Health Department, DeKalb County Extension Service, and Northeastern Center.
