Early stage support group for Alzheimer’s victims The Northeastern New York Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association has in­ troduced a newly designed support group aimed at providing an opportu­ nity to receive encouragement, assis­ tance, and moral support for both the individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and their caregiver. The Early Stage Support group provides a unique opportunity for the individual with Alzheimer's disease and their caregiver to be able to discuss their feelings and concerns regarding the disease in an open-and confidential environment with other individuals who are in similar situations. The group has been designed to allow both the time to meet separately for an hour to discuss their own areas of concern and emotional needs. The group will then meet together for a half hour in order to discuss any issues or topics of concern which may have developed in group. Special guest speakers will present related topics of interest such as driving, research, and caregiving concerns. The Early Stage \Support group will meet in Albany twice a month for twelve weeks and then will break for a short time while evaluations of the program and partici­ pants can be made. The date o f the next support group will bs February 28. An additional evening Early Stage'Support group is scheduled to start in Schenec­ tady in April For more information regarding this program or to register, contact the Alzheimer's Regional Branch Office located in Glens Falls.
