Alzheimer’s support group will meet in Henry

HENRY — The Alzheimer’s support group will meet from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at Heartland Health Care in Henry. This group is for anyone who cares for or knows someone with Alzheimer’s disease.

At last month’s meeting, the topic of communication was requested so the group will view and discuss the segment of the DVD “Accepting the Challenge” taught by master trainers Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, and Melanie Bunn, RN, MS, GPN. The DVD is designed to help caregivers provide the best possible care for people with dementia. The module to be viewed will concern communication skills.
