The Alzheimer’s/Dementia Ministry at St. Francis reaches out both to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other related dementia and to their caregivers. Its goal is to provide information to parishioners and support to caregivers of those whose memories have been robbed by dementia.
Twice-monthly support groups are available for caregivers.
The group meets
the first Wednesday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Padua Room in the Community Center
and the third Wednesday of every month from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Padua Room in the Community Center

Comments on why the participants come each month.
Here is what they had to say:
– It’s my lifeline. They don’t preach at you. You get to talk about your feeling without anyone judging you.
– I enjoy the support. It is good to get out without my husband.
– I felt so relieved after the first meeting. I couldn’t wait to come back. I felt I found people who understood.
– It is helpful to hear from people who have placed their loved ones in facility what the facility is really like.
