Holyoke – The responsibilities of caring for a family member or friend living with dementia can be both wonderful and overwhelming. To help provide a place where caregivers can share their experiences and concerns, Loomis House, 298 Jarvis Avenue, Holyoke is starting a Caregiver Support Group. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 9, from 4:00-5:30 pm in the Family Room of the Nursing Center. At this meeting the group will talk about strategies for caring for their loved one, as well as plan for topics and the best time and day for future meetings. The group is being organized by Brenda Mendoza, Lori Todd, Sandra Tower and Joanne Ortegas of the Loomis House Nursing Center. The meetings are free and all those who love and care for someone living with dementia are welcome! For more information, please call Sandra Tower at 413-538-7551.
