In an effort to help the caregiver, the Allentown Senior Citizen Centers, Inc. will offer a Caregiver Support Group on the last Thursday of every month. The support group will offer the caregiver a chance to talk with peers to discuss how each cope with daily stress.
Foremost the group will inform participants of supportive community resources and how to go about obtaining services. Speakers will be available to discuss topics of interest such as medical and legal issues. The group is an Alzheimer's Association affiliated support group.
The next group is scheduled to meet on Thursday, March 31 at the Henry Kaufmann Center, 2201 Salisbury Street, Arlington from noon to 1:30 p.m. Caregivers are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch if desired. Lunches from the senior program are available to those 60 year of age and older. A donation of $1 is suggested but not necessary.
