Caregivers of family members are urged to attend a series of Aging Partners Caregiver Support Group meetings beginning in February. The schedule is as follows:
The support groups are designed to provide hope, information and a safe environment to share concerns with an emphasis on who takes care of the caregiver. The meetings are open to individuals of any age who provide care for an adult age 60 and over; those who provide care for a person with Alzheimer's disease, a brain injury or related brain disorder; and individuals over the age of 55 who are raising a grandchild.
The meetings will be led by Sandy Lutz, a licensed independent Mental Health Practitioner and Aging Partners program supervisor.
Contributions are accepted but not required for this Older American's Act service. For more information is available by calling 402-441-6590 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information on Aging Partners can be found at aging.lincoln.ne.gov.
