Early Stage Support Group Series for People Living With Alzheimer’s and Dementia

The Alzheimer’s Association and St. Matthias Catholic Church are co-hosting an Early Stage Support Group series for people living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and their care partners. The group will meet Wednesday, May 11th from 2pm-3:30pm in the dePorres room in the Parish Office. We are also offering a Zoom link for those who cannot attend face to face. Registration is required. To register, call 800-272-3900. The Alzheimer’s Support Group meets every second Wednesday of the month!

The Group provides a safe and supportive environment and offers dementia-related education, emotional support and connections with resources so that the group members may enhance their lives in the midst of the journey.

Alzheimer’s Association support groups provide emotional, educational and social support through regularly scheduled meetings where strict confidentiality is maintained. Support groups help participants develop coping methods and encourage the maintenance of their personal, physical and emotional health, as well as optimal care for the person living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

Early-Stage groups offer social, educational and/or support components and are facilitated by trained volunteers. For more information visit alz.org/NJ.
