CARE, hands resting on each other

Alzheimer's Support

Spouses, children, and other family members in caregiver relationships with those living with Alzheimer's and Dementia are invited to join this support group. The support needs of family members caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s is important to our community. Caring for loved ones as their lives meet new challenges of disease is a holy journey. Sharing this experience with others and finding encouragement along the way is life-giving for our care givers. Questions? Contact Mary Cordell at mary@normandalecenter.org or 952.977.9363.
