Caregiver support groups can be a vital lifeline for caregivers of persons with dementia. Support groups help attendees understand they are not alone, share their feelings about what they are facing, and a great way to learn from each other. Our groups are volunteer run and meet at a variety of times and locations.
Early Stage support groups are offered throughout the year and are accessible by phone. Led by a licensed clinical social workers, this 6-week service provides valuable information and an opportunity to share for people in the early stage of Alzheimer's and related disorders.
Alzheimer's Texas* has worked for over a decade to assist in the development of community-based respite programs. Providing 3 - 4 hours of free care every week, these programs are volunteer run and provide meaningful engagement for a person with early to middle stage Alzheimer's or related disease. Caregivers are given the gift of time to take care of items related to their personal health and well-being. Many of these programs us our model and receive on-going training and support from our staff.
In addition to community respite development, Alzheimer’s Texas* has Early Stage social engagement programs called Talking Baseball and Talking Football. Led by a group of dedicated volunteers, this program features 6 meetings where persons in the Early Stage and their caregivers reconnect with a lifetime of memories through conversations about a shared passion: baseball. Fun activities and themed food may these meetings a ton of fun!
The next session is starting Spring 2016. Learn more here.
