For most couples, going out for a meal or an activity is a normal part of life. But when one of the members of the couple is memory-impaired, even the simplest activity is filled with anxiety and difficulty. JFCS has created a unique program to help caregivers and their spouses with memory impairments to enjoy time out together, combining a caregiver support group with an engaging activity for the care recipient. Join us as a new group begins Thursday September 6th at 10:30am.
