The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter is offering a new dementia caregiver support group for Fort Wayne and surrounding communities in Northeast Indiana.
The support group will be held at 10 a.m. on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Because of COVID-19, it will be held virtually. Caregivers can join online or by phone.
“We continue to offer Chapter-wide virtual support groups during this time, but we wanted to provide a place specifically for caregivers in Northeast Indiana as well,” said Maggie Cattell, Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter program manager for Fort Wayne. “Support groups are a great way to connect with people who are going through a similar journey, but they also give caregivers a forum for sharing local information and resources. Especially during this difficult time, families facing Alzheimer’s and dementia need all the support they can get.”
All programs and support groups are free of charge. Registration is required and available at alz.org/crf or via the Alzheimer’s Association free, 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900.
The Helpline is also available any time, day or night, for immediate, confidential support. Master’s-level care consultants can offer crisis assistance, information on care planning and legal decisions, strategies to reduce caregiver stress and more.
The Alzheimer’s Association leads the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia – by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
