Caring for a loved one with dementia is one of the most difficult tasks anyone can face. Joining a support group is an important and positive step toward self-care. Support groups provide family members and loved ones with an opportunity to learn from others, receive support for themselves and hear about the many aspects of various forms of dementia, including Alzheimer's. This support group meets every third Wednesday of the month, at the Ashland Senior Center. For more information, contact the Alzheimer's Association at 1.800.272.3900 or visit their website at alz.org/oregon.
