Alzheimer’s Support Group (Formerly Caregiver Support Group)

Hospice of Green Country at July Meeting

Join us at 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 17, in the Parlor of Central Campus. Two speakers from Hospice of Green Country will join us to share little-known facts about Hospice care and allow you to ask questions in a Q & A session.

Ashlie B. Casey, LCSW, ACHP-SW is Director of Social Services and John Vanaman is Chaplain, both of Hospice of Green Country, are the scheduled speakers.

“We get questions about hospice at almost every meeting of the Alzheimer’s Support Group,” said Frances Ibañez, Director of Care Ministries. “We often think of using Hospice care during the last few days or weeks of life. It can actually be used much earlier and has greater benefits than most people know.”

If you know someone who is providing care for a loved one, please invite them to attend this meeting. We never know when this type of information might be useful.

For more information please contact Frances at 918-341-4580, ext. 331 or email her at fibanez@ClaremoreFUMC.org.

About

This group meets every third Tuesday of the month at 10:00 in the Central Campus Parlor. It is designed to provide emotional, educational, and social support for those caring for those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia related conditions. Through regularly scheduled meetings participants will develop methods and skills to handle different situations and reduce stress. The group encourages caregivers to maintain their own personal, physical, and emotional health, as well as optimally care for their loved ones. We are inviting those who are serving as caregivers to join us and let us help by “carrying each other’s burdens” (Galatians 6:2a NIV).

If you or anyone you know is caring for a love one and needs support and encouragement, let them know about our group.
