Family Caregiver Discussion Group
4th Wednesday of each month, 7:00-8:30p

Join an on-going family discussion group to learn about the challenges of caregiving. Receive support from others who also experience these challenges. Facilitator Shemaya Blauer, MSW, LCSW is committed to excellence and a person-centered approach in the face of challenges and adversity. Insightful, she establishes rapport easily and looks forward to bringing her innovative skills to the caregivers who daily oversee the needs of a spouse or other family member when Alzheimer’s Disease is not part of the issue.
