Caring for someone with Alzheimers is tough. Come to the Mccracken County Alzheimer’s Support Group meetings on the third Thursday of every month at in the Franciscan Room. The next meeting, on May 17, will focus on counseling for the caregiver. Amanda McIntosh, a Four Rivers Behavioral Health counselor will be the featured speaker. She will be available to answer questions and concerns of Alzheimers patient’s caregivers.
As Alzheimers caregivers know, the biggest challenge we face is learning how to understand, cope, and communication with a person living with dementia and it can often be overwhelming. At the upcoming support group meeting, our Four Rivers Behavioral Health counselor will help highlight solutions to some of the problems caregivers face each day. They have been tested over time by thousands of caregivers and they work. Most times it takes a little practice and a lot of patience. Some work immediately, while other solutions take some time to start working. Don’t allow yourself to get frustrated.
