Newtown, CT, November 19, 2013…… The community is cordially invited to participate in the Caregiver Support Group held monthly at Masonicare at Newtown. Sponsored by the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, the meetings are open to individuals who provide care for family members with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia diagnoses.
The Support Group is designed to help these families and caregivers, who often experience tremendous emotional, physical and financial hardships. Lifelong plans are frequently postponed and dreams disrupted while this progressive, debilitating disease unfolds.
The Support Group meets the first Monday of every month from 1:30 pm-2:30 pm in the Nutmeg Room at Masonicare at Newtown, 139 Toddy Hill Road in Newtown. Meetings provide a relaxed, confidential atmosphere where caregivers can meet with others like themselves, exchange experiences and ideas on how to cope with their unique problems, and hear about the latest government programs and new research developments. Refreshments are served.
For further information, please call group facilitator Debbie Smeriglio, LCSW, at
