November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Let your patients’ families know about the monthly support group held by the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter at the ConnectiCare Center in Manchester.
The support group, free and open to the public, is held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. every third Wednesday at 1487 Pleasant Valley Road, Manchester. The group is led by a trained facilitator and provides a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to:
- Develop a support system
- Share information and solutions
- Talk about their situations, feelings and concerns
If you have a patient who has dementia or is caring for someone with dementia, please encourage them to seek help from a local support group. You can share this flyer with them.
