Harvard Square started a Caregiver Support Group for families and friends of those affected by dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our first meeting was March 17th and moving forward will be the 3rd Saturday of each month at 10:00am. This support group is open to the public. At our first meeting, we had current residents of Harvard Square whose spouses have dementia. It was a great introductory meeting. We talked about ways Harvard Square can better support them. Many ideas were discussed and some great actions came out of the meeting. It is important that those who are caring for their spouse with dementia also care for themselves. It is very important to have time to meet with your friends, go to breakfast or even get your hair done. We talked about ways to help make this happen and put in place some action plans. We are all looking forward to our next meeting and hope more people will join us. Our next meeting will take place on April 22nd at 10:00am in our new Memory Care neighborhood.
