The Dementia Caregiver Support and Education Program welcomes caregivers of Veterans, Veteran caregivers, and VA staff caring for the dementia-afflicted Veterans. The program consists of monthly classes that cover Dementia-related topics using a personalized approach.
These group sessions allow caregivers to exchange experiences and receive coping tips on Dementia-related topics. These classes vary topics from month to month. The next class will be held Friday, September 13, 2019 from 11 a.m. to Noon in the Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) Conference Room A323 (3rd Floor) and the topic is “Talking to the Healthcare Team.”
