The director of The Cottages talks about its monthly Alzheimer’s Support Group.
Frisco, TX, Oct. 17, 2016 – Families with loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease have a place to turn for support. The Cottages at Chapel Creek and other Cottages locations across Texas offer monthly support group meetings meant to help address the needs of family members and caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s and other memory disorders.
While each Cottages location has its own support group schedule, all meetings are designed to provide family members and caregivers valuable information, thoughtful advice and a place to connect with others walking the same path.
“When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, the diagnosis truly impacts the entire family,” says Trent Quinn, founder, president and CEO of The Cottages. “Family members and caregivers need a place to turn to learn what to expect, techniques for coping and to gain insights on how best to help their loved ones live life to the fullest. Our monthly support groups also provide a place where caregivers can meet others who fully understand what they are going through and the emotions and challenges they face.”
Each Cottages location has its own set day and time for support group meetings. The gatherings are open to those with a family member or other loved one living with a memory disorder. Meetings are overseen by The Cottages own professional caregivers. People interested in attending can RSVP at their location of choice or stop by the community to express their interest.
“The Cottages is more than an assisted living community for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders,” explains Quinn. “We are also a caring and compassionate community resource, dedicated to helping others.”
