Alzheimer’s support meets at Beacon Pointe
Beacon Pointe Memory Care Facility offers an
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Group one hour per month. This month’s meeting is Thursday, June 19, from 2 to 3 p.m.
Come to share with others who are facing similar experiences with their loved one who has dementia. There will be helpful tips and different things to learn that may make life just a little easier.
Choosing to care for a loved one is one of the most important choices you make as an adult. At times it will be difficult and frustrating. Try to remember to keep your sense of humor – you will laugh and, at times, you will cry. Here are some caregiver survival tips:
Put staying healthy at the top of your list
Have a backup plan in case something unexpected happens to you
Take one day at a time
Keep your sense of humor
Pat yourself on the back for the good job you are doing
Get enough rest and eat right
Make time for the things you like to do
Talk about how you feel with others
Listen to your friends
Make a list of all the things your loved one can still do.
The group is open to anyone and is free of charge.
