KOSCIUSKO — The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter hosts support groups across the state for unpaid care partners, family members and friends of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Support groups are free and designed to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers. Attendees will develop coping methods, encourage self-care, learn about community resources and optimize care techniques. While sharing personal experiences is encouraged, it is not required.
“Caregivers face a variety of unique challenges, but they are not alone on this journey,” said Denise Saxman, Program Director. “The Alzheimer’s Association is here to help. Through these groups, we hope to connect families not only to our care and support services, but to a larger network of families facing similar situations.”
