Caring for a loved one with dementia can be a stressful, lonely job. Oftentimes, we hear caregivers say they’re looking for support from people who’ve been in their shoes. Our Dementia Caregiver Support Group offers just that.
Come, join us!
• Exchange practical information on care giving solutions
• Talk through challenges and ways of coping
• Share feelings, needs and concerns
Group Facilitator: Josie Winland, Executive Director Josie taps into personal and professional experience to lead the group. She was a caregiver for a family member with dementia and served three years as our Director of Memory Care. Josie helped launch Heartfelt CONNECTIONS – A Memory Care Program® at Monticello West, designed to promote physical and emotional well-being, support daily functioning and maintain a sense of satisfaction, dignity and quality of life.
Next Meeting: May 29th at 10:30 am.
RSVP to (214) 528-0660 up to one hour before the meeting.
Refreshments will be served.
“Mom loves her apartment. It’s nicely painted and carpeted, and the size is perfect for her. She has a living room area with a full-size couch and chairs, so she can entertain guests. I visit a couple of times a week, and my husband swings by on other days. My son stops by every few weeks, too. Mom has her own space that looks and feels like home. Every time I’m there, she just seems contented. ”
“The minute I entered the community I liked what I saw, but it didn’t stop there. I’ve visited other communities where the furniture was lovely in the main areas and when you proceeded down the hallways, it was a different scenario. But as we continued to look around at Monticello West, I thought: This is pleasant! ”
“The staff is caring and genuine. From the beginning, we didn’t feel like we were being processed, date-stamped and handed off to the next person. The community must have an exceptional hiring process, because I have yet to find someone there who isn’t qualified, doesn’t respect me or that I don’t enjoy. The caregivers are polite, and perhaps most important, I trust them.”
