Join us for a caregiver support group for caregivers of those with memory loss! We understand the struggle - you are not alone.

Join us on the first Thursday of every month (except July and December) for our caregiver support group! Each month, we have a designated topic and/or guest speaker that provides information and support for caregivers, family, and friends, of those living with memory loss. This event is meant to be a safe space to share stories, ask questions, and be surrounded by others. This is a tough disease -- you are not alone.

This program is a partnership with Bickford Senior Living, Bickford Home Care, and Gentiva Hospice. Call Megan at (319) 373-7000 for additional information.
