Dementia/Alzheimer's Family & Caregivers Support Group

The challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, or other types of dementia, can leave both family members and caregivers feeling alone, depressed, and exhausted. The Williams County Public Library will be offering a support group to caregivers and family members. The group will be facilitated by Morrie Frappier, who has a MA in clinical psychology, years of experience as a group facilitator, and personal experience of the hardships of dealing with a family member suffering from dementia.

This group will offer caregivers and families support in a number of ways: a source of information on what to expect from your loved one, a connection to community resources, along with a chance for questions and an exchange of experiences. Without answers to their questions and solutions for their problems caregivers can easily start to feel alone, depressed, and exhausted. This will be an opportunity to connect to others dealing with the same life issues.

This group will meet weekly on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm, with the first meeting being held on November 16th. Meetings will take place in the Harmon Room of the Local History Center, which is located on the northeastern corner of High and Main Streets in Bryan, Ohio. Meetings are FREE to attend, and no registration is necessary. All are welcomed.
