I just got notice of a new twice monthly support group for individuals who are involved in the care of someone with dementia. Its free, and it meets the first and third Wednesday of every month from 11 am – 12 pm at 1015 W. Howard Street, Evanston
*Learn about dementia and caregiving
*Meet others who face similar challenges
*Discover ways to relieve caregiver stress and burn-out
*Help others and receive support
Pre-register and your loved one can attend the adult day services program while YOU attend the support group!
Open to the public. Drop-ins are welcome; pre-registration is only required if you are bringing a loved one.
