The Alzheimer’s Association support group in Rhea County will hold its kickoff meeting on Tuesday, April 29 at 5:30 p.m. at The Veranda Assisted Living Community.
Alzheimer’s Association Education Liaison, Wendy Winters, will be the guest speaker for the initial meeting. The support group, facilitated by Melissa Wood, will hold regularly scheduled meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
"Caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer's is extremely challenging," stated Amy French, manager of programs and education. "These groups provide support for others who are in the same boat, facing the same challenges. No one should have to go through this alone.”
Alzheimer’s Association support groups are designed to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. To find other support groups in the area, check their website at alz.org/altn.
