There are now two support groups available for caregivers assisting people with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.

The Evening Support Group will begin meeting April 7 and continue to do so on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. The Afternoon Support Group will begin meeting on April 21 at 2:30 p.m. and continue to meet on the third Tuesday of the month. Both groups will meet in the third floor small conference room at the Owatonna Library.

The support groups help participants develop coping methods and encourage caregivers to maintain their personal, physical and emotional health as well as care for the person with dementia.
