ALZHEIMER’S CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUP & EDUCATION
Choice in Aging, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, is proud to present a monthly FREE support group for caregivers and their families. Held the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 4:30pm to 6:00pm at our offices in Pleasant Hill, the meetings address a relevant and different topic each session. Navigating the life changing diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be overwhelming, but we are here to help!
