Dementia support group schedules free meetings

A memory loss support group for the caregivers of those with Alzheimer's disease will meet Wednesday, July 22, from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at the Heartwood Senior Living Community in Crosby and from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Home Instead in Brainerd.

Rachel Cummings from Treasured Times Adult Day Services will speak about the services Treasured Times provides, their benefits and costs.

Group facilitators are Karen Ford and Pam Wachholz, who have been trained through the Alzheimer's Association to lead memory loss support groups. Both women have loved ones in their lives with Alzheimer's, a disease that attacks the brain.

The group is free and open to the public; no reservations are necessary. Light refreshments and beverages will be served.
