MOUNT VERNON — Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease is a challenge. Changes in the person’s behavior, caused by the progress of the disease, can lead to frustration and anxiety for a caregiver. To help those who care for individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease or a related memory loss disorder, the Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter, invites anyone who has a family member or friend with memory loss to attend the following support group meeting.
A support group will meet today at 6:30 p.m., at the Brookdale Library, 1615 Yauger Road. This meeting is free and open to the community. Caregivers attending a support group meeting find a relaxed, confidential atmosphere. They are among other caregivers and discuss suggestions for handling specific medical, legal, behavioral and financial problems.
