Darien Support Group for Senior Caregivers
Did you that there's an Alzheimer's-Dementia Caregiver Support Group that meets at the Darien Senior Center on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 1:00-2:30 pm?
I'm always surprised when I learn about how many services there are to help seniors and their caregivers.
My mother had dementia. It was a real challenge to converse with her and virtually impossible to reason with her, especially when she would call at 2:00 a.m. to talk. She had no idea it was the middle of the night. This prompted us to get 'round the clock care for her, rather than just daytime care. And I did this pre-internet and before the time of support groups.
