Monthly support group for friends and family caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. It offers a safe, confidential and supportive environment for participants to develop informal, mutual support and social relationships.

The group educates and informs participants about dementia and helps develop methods and skills to solve problems and create coping mechanisms. The group also encourages and supports caregivers to maintain their own physical and emotional health while enabling them to optimally care for a person with dementia.

Amy Hemmer, speech-language pathologist at Brookings Health System, facilitates the group.

No adult daycare provided.
