S@5: Caregivers Wellbeing
November is National Family Caregivers month
Every 4 seconds someone is diagnosed with dementia.
Even more shocking: 40% of caregivers will ‘pass’ before the person they are caring for. Biggest reason…stress.
Caregivers Wellbeing is a FREE local support group for both men and women caring for a loved one with any of the dementias, including Alzheimer’s. The group meets in-person on Wednesdays at 11am at Centenary Methodist Church in downtown Winston-Salem, NC. Zoom support meetings on Fridays (1pm). Also, in person meetings at the Shepherd’s Center in Kernersville, NC on Mondays. www.caregiverswellbeing.org/
Dr Ann Hiatt (facilitator with Caregivers Wellbeing) along with Mary Adler share more with Verne (WBFJ radio) about their own separate caregiving journeys. Listen now…
