Alzheimer's Support Group Details

Alzheimer's disease has often been referred to as a "family disease," because while one person may be affected, Alzheimer's disease touches the lives of family, friends, and the community. The care required for a person with Alzheimer's disease can demand new levels of time, attention, and energy.  If you are feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by the pressures brought on by your role as an Alzheimer's caregiver, you are not alone. These are very common feelings. But, taking care of yourself can help you maintain your quality of life as you strive to provide the best care for a person with Alzheimer's disease.

Please join other GVSU and community caregivers as they share resources, experiences and helpful information to help you navigate through this very difficult time.

Facilitated by:
Dr. Cindy Beel-Bates, Kirkhof College of Nursing and
Sue Sloop, GVSU Work Life Consultant
