VMAC Caregiver & Early Stage Alzheimer's Patient Support Groups

iStock_000017463711_Large.jpgThe Alzheimer’s Association’s support groups provide emotional, educational, and social support to people in middle Tennessee who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other related memory disorders.

In collaboration with the Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center, the Alzheimer’s Association Mid-South Chapter is offering professionally-led support groups for both individuals recently diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment and their loved ones.

The support group offers a comforting environment for people who are experiencing early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment, where they can talk to other adults who understand what it feels like to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

While individuals with memory loss are participating in one group, their loved ones (such as spouses and adult children) attend a second group held at the exact same time. The group for loved ones provides the opportunity to spend time with others who understand what it is like to have a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment while also learning about helpful resources.

These support groups meet monthly in the early evening at the Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center, and attendees are encouraged to attend as available.

To learn more about this support group or to reserve your spot for an upcoming support group meeting, please call the Vanderbilt Memory & Alzheimer’s Center at 615-322-8676.
