Our Memory Support Group

We started a Memory Support Group here at Azalea Trace based on other disease support groups, specifically directed at those with Memory issues.  The group has grown in participation and in support and is now ready to expand again.  We now have a  professional facilitator from Covenant Care that meets with us once a month.   We have an association with Sacred Heart Neurological Group that provides a Doctor to meet with us once a quarter.  We have established a library of Dementia Pamphlets from the National Institute of Health and some books like "The 36 Hour Day".  

But the best part of the group is the trust and comeradere of the group members.   We help each other!   It is great to be part of a comfortable, accepting, community of people that are going through many of the same issues.   Being able to openly discuss personal issues, knowing no one will judge you for those issues, is reassuring and enabling!
