Dementia Support Group Meeting: December 26, 2009

Caring for someone with dementia can be difficult and, at times, overwhelming. Join us for the support group meeting to get the support you've been looking for. Meet a community of friends who are caregivers of their loved ones who are facing similar life challenges, medical conditions, and mental health issues.

All are welcome!

Date and time: Saturday, 26th December, 2009, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.


Sandhya Kirana.
O'Shangassey Road, Akkithimmanahalli,
Richmond Town, Bangalore - 5600025
Phone: 080 - 41248448, 41248449

Expert Invited:

Neela Patel M.D, M.P.H, Geriatrics, Gerontology & Palliative Medicine, department of Medicine, San Antonio, USA has kindly agreed to address the caregivers and answers their questions.

For those new to the idea of support groups, such groups generally provide information about the disease, education and practical support. They provide an excellent forum for learning how other people have coped with the symptoms of dementia and the life changes the disease causes. Caregivers find it helpful to know that someone else is experiencing similar problems and understands their issues and overwhelm.

Again, all are welcome! All those concerned and connected with the care of persons with dementia are encouraged to participate. For queries, or to confirm participation, call us on 93427 30936 or 080 - 41248448

Or just walk in to share your experiences and discuss your problems with fellow-caregivers.
