The discussion will include topics such as what to expect, coping strategies, and available resources along with time to socialize and network.

MIAMI – Miami's All Saints' Episcopal Church continues its series of supportive events under its Alzheimer's service mission Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to noon with the first in a three-part offering for caretakers.

Partnering with the church to provide this free resource is Intergis Miami Hospital and the Alzheimer's Association.

A speaker from the Alzheimer's Association will present information Wednesday aimed at caretakers aiding those in the early stage of the Alzheimer's/Dementia disease process.

The discussion will include topics such as what to expect, coping strategies, and available resources along with time to socialize and network.

Caretakers are encouraged to bring persons in their care if possible as the meet-ups are designed to provide a learning and social space suitable for all.

The following two gatherings in the three-part series will have dates announced as they are scheduled and will focus on support information for caretakers of persons with mid-stage, and then late-stage Alzheimer's/Dementia.

The church has been host to several free educational and social meet-ups since September 2017 providing support to community members directly impacted by Alzheimer's/Dementia and those wishing to learn more about the disease process.

All Saints' congregant Linda Smith was the catalyst of the church's Alzheimer's faith initiative, having recognized a community need as a former nurse and caregiver to family members with Dementia.

The gatherings are held at the All Saints' Parish located at 225 B St. NW in Miami. For more information call 918-542-3662 or visit http://allsaintsmiami.epiok.org/.
