Caregivers of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease or other related dementias are invited to attend the Richmond-Rosenberg area caregivers’ meeting on Aug. 1.

The meetings are a place for caregivers to share information and learn about coping with such a diagnosis. This month’s meeting topic is titled “Meaningful Activities for People with Dementia.”

Dana Declouet, director of resident engagement at Silverado, will be the guest speaker, and she will provide suggestions and resources for activities that caregivers can provide for dementia patients that live at home or within a care facility.

The group meets the first Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 400 Jackson St. in Richmond (across from the historic Fort Bend County Courthouse).

Please use the Fourth Street side entrance. The session is free and open to the public.

The Richmond-Rosenberg ACSG is presented by Faith UMC and St. John’s UMC and sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association, Houston/SE Texas Chapter. For more information, call 713- 314-1313 or 1-800-272-3900.
