If you’re a caregiver for someone with dementia, or know someone who is, you may be interested in a new discussion group called “Finding Meaning and Hope.” They will be starting in Parker in early September.

“Finding Meaning and Hope” is described as a discussion series for those struggling with caring for someone with dementia.

A press release stated, “Join a group of fellow caregivers as we discuss the complexities of ongoing loss associated with caring for someone with dementia and what to do about it. You will learn skills to help you stay strong, healthy resilient and positive so you can navigate the journey with healing and hope.”

The series features videos based on the book, “Loving Someone Who Has Dementia:  How to Find Hope While Coping with Stress and Grief” by Pauline Boss. The press release stated she is the nation’s leading expert on caregiver grief.

The group will meet on from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays, from Sept. 5 through Nov. 14 at the Parker Community Senior Center. The cost is free. For more information, call Lee Ann Anderson or Mandy Shank at the La Paz Public Health Education & Prevention Program at 928-669-1062 or e-mail landerson@townofparker.us or mshank@townofparker.us.
