OCES has pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic to offer a virtual Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers Support Group.
Created specifically for people caring for someone with memory impairment, OCES’ Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers Support Group meets online via Zoom on the second and fourth Friday of each month, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The group is led by Alan Johnson, LICSW. Caregivers are able to receive practical advice, share their experiences, improve their coping skills and gather strategies to deal with common challenges.
This program is sponsored by OCES. Caregivers interested in attending the virtual group must register in order to attend and obtain log-in information.
Contact Alan Johnson directly at 508-747-2718 ext. 222 to register or for more information.
