Rose Rodeo Begins! Peonies Finishing…

GROUP SUPPORT: “I was dying for information and support when I found (and joined) this group…” a member from our dementia-caregiver support group emphatically expressed recently. Dementia Care-Partners: please know we have opened our support group (meeting twice monthly) to all ages of care-partners, dealing with all types of dementia. We continue to be specialists (survivors) of young-onset dementia (onset between ages 45-65), and the group will always have this specialty as long as I am the facilitator. We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, 6pm – 7:30pm. Our groups are sponsored by Alzheimer’s Association and the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration. Please contact me if you are interested in joining us.

INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT: Any care-partner, age 8-88+, may schedule with me, free-of-charge:

  1. A Spiritual-care visit (30 or 60 minutes)
  2. 2 Hour Respite Retreat
  3. 2 Hour Forest or Garden Therapy

MEMORY CAFE in the GARDEN®: Our next event is July 21, 10am – 12pm. We want more families living with dementia to join us at this monthly event!
