The second Tuesday of each month the Alzheimer?s support group meets at Community Health?s Allen Pond location in Suite 403. The meeting of up to a dozen Rutland area Alzheimer?s caregivers and family members is one of about 16 volunteer-led Alzheimer?s support groups in Vermont. The support meetings are run by the participants, many of whom have a lot of hands-on experience caring for Alzheimer?s patients. Each caregiver takes a turn to share their story or current situation. Other participants and the facilitators offer support and suggestions that are helpful for the other participants. Most importantly they offer ideas and useful experiences.
