Educational Activities

Caregiver Support Group

Each month we conduct a support group for those who are caregivers of someone with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia. This support group is a great opportunity for caregivers to get together and discuss some of the daily issues and challenges that they face.

Meeting Time

This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m.

This group is certified by the Alzheimer's Association. Please share this information with anyone that you know that might benefit from these meetings.

This month our meeting will be Tuesday, August 1st at 9 a.m.

Grief Support Group

The grief of losing someone that you love cannot be known until you are placed in that situation. Everyone experiences grief in their own way. There is no right or wrong in grieving. We have a Grief Support Group that meets the second Tuesday of each month.

Group Purpose

Our group is designed to bring people together who share a common experience – the loss of a loved one. Whether it has been 2 months or 5 years, the pain of loss can still be very intense. If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one, please join us for a strictly confidential meeting to share feelings and offer support.

Meeting Time

The meeting this month is on Tuesday, August 15th at 10 a.m.

Parkinson's Support Group

Parkinson's Disease is a chronic and progressive movement disorder that involves the malfunction of vital nerve cells in the brain. Many people experience tremors, slowness of movement, rigidity and postural instability. It is important to find the right physician and treatment plan for each person. A good exercise and nutrition plan is also very beneficial. Support Groups can provide a place to share similar experiences and tips for living with the disease.  With the help of the National Parkinson's Foundation and Vanderbilt University Medical Center and we have started a Parkinson's Support Group for those who are dealing with the disease. This is for those with Parkinson's and their families and caregivers. We will be meeting the 1st Friday of each month at 10 am. Our August support group will be on Friday, August 4th at 10 am.
