BRAINERD — The Lakes Area Memory Awareness Advocates and the Alzheimer’s Association will host a Caregiver Support Group meeting 2-3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at The Center, 803 Kingwood St. in Brainerd.

Caregiver Support Group offers a safe place to meet other caregivers on the journey of dementia, develop a mutual support system and exchange practical information on caregiving problems and possible solutions. The group will talk through challenges and ways of coping; share feelings, needs, and concerns; and learn about available community resources. This support group will help caregivers learn to take care of themselves so they can be there to take care of their loved one during the long journey.

Anyone caring for a friend or relative with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia is invited to join the Caregiver Support Group meeting.

“You don’t have to go through this alone,” organizers said in a news release.

For questions of other information, contact Lakes Area Memory Awareness Advocates and Alzheimer’s Association volunteer Kent O’Grady at kent.ogrady@gmail.com .

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
