Held from 6:30 to 8 p.m., the meetings will help primary caregivers, family members and friends understand Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, as well as offer education resources, guest speakers and peer support.
The group is led by Dawn Edwards and Suzanne Carpentier, who have both received intense training through the Alzheimer’s Association.
