Lane Regional Medical Center will host an Alzheimer’s Support Group on Friday, May 26, from 2-3:30 p.m. in the hospital’s West Wing Conference Room.
Alzheimer's disease is life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. Support groups provide a place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet with other caregivers who truly understand what you are going through and develop a mutual support system.
The Alzheimer's Support Group at Lane Regional Medical Center offers a place to:
- Exchange practical information on caregiving problems and possible solutions
- Talk through challenges and ways of coping
- Share feelings, needs and concerns
- Learn about resources available in your community
The Alzheimer’s Support Group at Lane Regional Medical Center is free and open to the public. Group meetings will be held on the fourth Friday of each month from 2-3:30 p.m. Meetings will be directed by Dianne Miller, Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator with Life Source Services of Baton Rouge. Pre-registration is appreciated. Call (225)975-1636.
