Alzheimer’s Dementia Caregiver Support GroupLearning that someone you care about has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia can be life changing. Coming to terms with the diagnosis requires time. Immediate reactions of denial and fear are normal and may help you and the person diagnosed process the grief you are feeling. –

Come join with others in fellowship that are on the same journey. We will be meeting Friday, May 26, and on the 2nd and 4th Friday mornings of each month, from 10-11:30am in room B104. This time will include a time of Biblical application to draw strength from His word; sharing our day-to-day struggles and successes for mutual encouragement; supporting each other in prayer. We will also share tips from various experts and each other. If you have any questions, contact Kathy Tesch at or 858-8696. We look forward to seeing you.
