Family Su

Adult Day Services offers not only respite for care givers, but also a special social support system. Every month, the staff members hold a Family Support Group meeting where the staff and family can get together and talk about ways to better care for their loved ones.  The Family Support Group meets the last Thursday of each month at 1:30 p.m., in the Adult Day Services at Saint Clare's Hospital.  Alzheimer's disease or other health-related problems can be very challenging. The support group members are able to address concerns and needs, and offer support and compassion to each other.
