St. Michael’s will be sponsoring a free support group for caregivers of family members with dementia. The group will be based on the book Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer’s A Spiritual Guide for Families Facing Dementia by Elizabeth Shulman.
It will cover areas such as caring for a parent, dealing with role reversal, asking for help and self-care for caregivers. It will also cover support for spouses, learning to cope with the unique
challenges of caring for a spouse with dementia. To register for the class please contact the Church Office, (401) 253-7717, Tuesdays through Thursdays from 8:30 am-2:30 pm. The book
