NEWBURY – The Alzheimer’s Association is pleased to announce a new caregiver support group is starting at St. Helen Catholic Church, 12060 Kinsman Rd., Newbury, OH 44065.

This spiritually-based group is open to all and offers a safe place for caregivers, family and friends currently caring for persons with dementia to develop a support system. There is no charge to participate and all groups are conducted by a trained facilitator.

The St. Helen’s group will meet the second Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Meetings will begin September 14.

Alzheimer’s Association caregiver support group members exchange practical information on caregiving challenges and possible solutions, talk through issues and ways of coping, share feelings, needs and concerns and learn about community resources.

The new group is the second in Geauga County. Chardon’s St. Mary’s Church hosts a monthly evening caregiver support group on the third Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
