FAIRBURY – The Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. in the JCHC Small Conference Room. Easiest access is by parking in the H Street parking and entering through the JCHC Main Entrance. Follow the lobby signage to “Hospital.” The meeting rooms will be to the left.

A support group is a gathering of people with common problems, needs and interests which allows them to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to survive the shared problems. It may include family members, caregivers, friends and other individuals interested in sharing information and giving and receiving support.
Those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease themselves are also welcome to attend the meetings.
The support group is open to anyone interested in attending. There is no charge and no membership commitment. No pre-registration is necessary.
