On Monday, a local dementia support group will begin meeting at Indiana Avenue Baptist Church.
The group, which is affiliated with Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc., will meet the first Monday of every month from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be a discussion, information will be distributed, and there will be a time for sharing.
“Just supporting each other, and giving them information where they can get help,” Charlene Partin, of IABC said.
The group is open to caregivers, family members, and friends of people afflicted with dementia.
“Anybody who’s touched with this,” Partin said.
Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc. is an organization based in Knoxville that offers support and information to caregivers. Alzheimer’s Tennessee will support the local group and provide information for it.
“They will supply us with lots of information that we will share with our group,” Partin said.
The group will meet in IABC’s new building. Members can find the meeting room on the right when they enter.
People with questions should call Charlene Partin at 562-3420 or Joanna Kelly at 784-3838.
Kelly has been delivering forms to doctor’s offices, but people can arrive at 6:45 p.m. to register.
