Press release:

Providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be stressful and isolating, but support groups can provide coping tools and a welcoming embrace from others in the same position.

The Alzheimer's Association Western New York chapter sponsors a number of caregiver support group across the region. The groups meet monthly, and are designed to provide emotional and social support for caregivers and help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems. The groups encourage caregivers to maintain their own personal, physical, and emotional health, as well as optimally care for the person with dementia.

In Genesee County, the support group is held on the third Wednesday of the month, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Richmond Memorial Library, 19 Ross St., in the City of Batavia.

For more information about these and the other two dozen monthly support group meetings across WNY, call 1.800.272.3900 during regular business hours.
