Caregivers Support Group

If you are a caregiver; a family member, friend or neighbor, who helps care for an individual who needs help with day-to-day living, Alzheimer's Disease, and other dementias, we welcome you to the Cass County COA's Caregiver's Support Group. Caregivers of all ages can take advantage of this opportunity to learn, grow, and share with others. Meetings include time for personal interaction as well as occasional guest speakers on topics of interest. Care can be provided for your loved one free of charge in our Adult Day Service during this meeting if prior arrangements are made. This group meets the 2nd and Last Wednesdays of each month from 1 to 3pm. (learn more)
