Tiburon, CA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
Living Well renewed its agreement with the California Pacific Medical Center and its Community Resource Center to conduct a support group for patients with Young Onset of Alzheimer's Disease. The support group will provide a helping hand for families and individuals dealing with early onset of this disease.
For the second half of 2013, the Early Alzheimer's Support Group will be meeting every fourth Wednesday of the month. The group is sponsored by the Community Health Resource Center (CHRC) and Living Well Assisted Living at Home, and it is free with no preregistration required.
Early onset (also known as younger-onset) Alzheimer's affects people younger than age 65. Nearly four percent of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer’s have early onset. Doctors do not understand why most cases of early onset Alzheimer's appear at such a young age. Many people with early onset are in their 40s and 50s. They have families, careers or are even caregivers themselves when Alzheimer's disease strikes. In the United States, it is estimated that more than 200,000 people have early onset.
Join the support group to connect with others in similar situations for advice, friendship, education or just a friendly shoulder for caregivers or loved ones.
Every fourth Wednesday of the month, the group will meet from
4:00 p.m. — 5:30 p.m. at CPMC Pacific Campus, 2100 Webster Street, Suite 119, Board Room, San Francisco, CA 94115.
Next meetings are as follows:
- August 28
- September 25
- October 23
- November 27
- December 18
