Where can I receive help or information about Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer's Caregiver Group

It is critical for any who are primary caregivers or have loved ones in a facility to:

1) understand Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and how you can still play an important role in your loved one’s life and,

2) acquire the tools needed to allow you time for your life; less stress and less guilt.  

You can learn that it is alright to be angry, to feel frustrated, to ask for help, to recognize your limits, to make mistakes, to laugh and love, to hope.

If you are interested in becoming part of this group, it meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at the Lucius Beebe Memorial Library from 7:00 – 8:30pm.  The group offers educational materials, guest speakers and peer support.  

Support group facilitator, Dawn Edwards, has been trained through the Alzheimer’s Association.  She has also completed numerous hours of dementia related trainings and stays current as to the latest research being done in the field.  Please contact her at 781-665-0273, if interested, or with any questions.
