WAYS TO CONNECT WITH GOD AND EACH OTHER!
When: 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month, 1:00-3:00pm

Caring for a loved one with dementia is something you just do. Though done out of love, it can be difficult and emotionally draining for the caregiver. Because of this, JupiterFIRST is, once again, offering a Dementia Caregivers Support Group.
Led by Christine VonBallmoos LCSW, this group is designed to be supportive and educational, and will provide the love and resources needed to be an effective caregiver.
