The Caregiver Support Group at the Norwalk Senior Center is for caregivers of family members or friends diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Dementia.
Questions have come up in the past few months about travelling with someone with dementia. So we have invited Eva Greenwald, of Eva’s Best Travel & Cruises, to meet with us and will share tips for traveling with someone with memory loss. She has worked with families to advise and make the various arrangements for care, assistance and equipment if necessary so they can enjoy their vacation together as a family.
Dementia Care Specialists from Wilton Meadows will be available to provide activities for loved ones while caregivers meet. Please let us know if you will be bringing your loved one.
The group offers caregivers an opportunity to share their experiences, help others by sharing their ideas, find out about resources and information that might be helpful. Meetings are friendly and informal. Occasionally there are themes and guest speakers.
Meetings are on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. At the meeting on the second Thursday, there are Dementia Care Specialists from Wilton Meadows who provide activities for loved ones while caregivers meet.
Hosted by Lynn Westfield, the group is free and open to all. Membership in the Senior Center is not required.
For more information or if you are interested in participating, please call Lynn at (203) 847-3115 ext. 108 or send an email to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
