Alzheimer’s caregiver support group series offered in Harmony


Mon, Jul 6th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Health & Wellness

Beginning on Monday July 13, the ACT on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Committee will be hosting a free eight week caregiver support series presented

by the talented staff at Heartland Hospice. This free series, “Journey of the Heart”, will be held at the Clara House Senior Living Center, 455 Main Ave N., Harmony, Minn. on Monday afternoons from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., July 13 through August 31.

If you or anyone you know are traveling with your loved one along the often unpredictable road of dementia care, please join us for some or all of our once a week Monday gatherings. Together we will explore the disease of Alzheimer’s/dementia and tips for navigating this process, how to manage stress through healthy self-care habits, and ways to create meaningful moments with your loved one. Pre-registration is not required.

The themes for each week are as follows:

• Week 1 - July 13, Welcome/Introduction to the series.

• Week 2 - July 20, Understanding the disease beyond the diagnosis.

• Week 3 - July 27, Tips for spending time with your loved ones.

• Week 4 - August 3, How to build personal support systems.

• Week 5 - August 10, Facing the stress and grief associated with dementia caregiving.

• Week 6 - August 17, How-tos to improve Communications with health care providers.

• Week 7 - August 24, Understanding the medical strategies, the disease stages and progression.

• Week 8 - August 31, A closing gathering for the Journey of the Heart series.

In September, the ACT on Alzheimer’s committee will switch to monthly Alzheimer’s support meetings with programs provided by regional experts through the end of the year.

The Act on Alzheimer’s-Harmony Committee has recently donated additional recommended Alzheimer’s related books to the Harmony Public Library’s Dementia Resource Book Section. Please make use of the Dementia Resource Book Section at the library. One can find a large number of topics covering the many needs of Alzheimer’s.
