Support For Caregivers Of Alzheimer’s Patients

The annual walk for support of Alzheimer’s programs is this week. Alzheimer’s Arkansas is an Arkansas service agency whose mission is to provide the information and support needed so that all Arkansans affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias are able to live with dignity and comfort until a cure is found. All monies raised by the walk will be used to provide services within Arkansas. One of the services provided by Alzheimer’s Arkansas is available here, in Fairfield Bay, for anyone who cares for a person afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related dementia. A group of caregivers meets monthly to share information about problems they encounter, medical information they have discovered and helps for common behaviors. The group meets at IRV the third Wednesday afternoon of each month. The next meeting will be at 2 p.m. on September 18, 2013. For more information call Nancy Johnson, 884-6728.
