About the Event
Our 1st Tuesday Dementia Support Group meetings are free, open to the public, and refreshments are provided.
Every month we have a guest speaker who provides Dementia-specific information about resources, research, strategies, techniques, activities, medications, and more.
In July we will have two guest speakers: Marilyn Fennimore, Licensed Family Services Counselor with Kent Forest Lawn Funeral Home and Cemeteries and Karen McGee CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist, Owner of Senior Helpers of Panama City.
9:35 Marilyn will be discussing how to achieve "Peace of Mind."
10:00 Karen will present information regarding "Senior Gems - A Guide for Family members with Dementia," managing difficult behaviors such as hallucinations and dellusions, and the difference between Lewy Bodies dementia and Alzheimer's.
During COVID 19, our 1st Tuesday Dementia Support Group has been meeting using Zoom but beginning in June 2020 limited space will be available at the Beach Chamber for an in-person meeting with social distancing. If you would like to meet in-person or have questions about how to Zoom, email Karen: firstname.lastname@example.org.

During our Dementia Support Group meetings, Care partners discuss their life experiences with people living with Dementia. There is plenty of time to ask questions, talk about common interests, concerns, and challenges. We socialize, share ideas, help each other solve problems, and show support for each other in the process.
Come join us this month and experience the benefits of a support group in your life.
