Family Caregiver Workshops
Family Caregiver Workshops are designed specifically for family caregivers. Provided in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association and the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living (BGAAAIL), they are led by experts who focus on information about Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and caregiving. The sessions provide an opportunity to reflect and gain a new perspective on caregiving issues. These trainings are designed specifically for family caregivers and held every three months.

In the last few years stress for all of us has increased and that is especially true for caregivers! We know that stress and caregiving can impact all aspects of life. We have partnered with UK Telecare and other agencies across Kentucky to provide caregiver resources. Our hope is that we can help reduce stress and get you connected to the resources you need to maximize the care you provide your loved one.
Early Stage Support Group
Support groups create a safe, confidential, supportive environment or community and a chance for participants to develop informal mutual support and social relationships. They also educate and inform participants about dementia and help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems. This group is specifically designed for people in the early stages of dementia and their care partners. This group is in partnership with the Alzheimer's Association.
The group meets the second Tuesday of each month and is open to anyone in the early stages of dementia and their caregiver(s).
