Social Support Groups for Alzheimer's & Dementia

Plus an Update From Alan Arnette

Today we will be discussing the concopts of social support groups for people with memory loss and their caregivers.  What are these groups.  Where did they come from and why are they an important!

Jytte Lokvig will be our guest.  She opened the Alzheimer's Cafe here in the US. I will speak about the Memory Cafe here in the US. We plan to have some participants on the show as well to get their perspective.  Although these to are similar concepts they also are different, but both aremeeting a need!

We look forward to a lively discussion of what are the needs of those living withthe disease and how do we as a society meet them!

Please call in or use the chat box for your questions or comments.  We always love to hear from our listeners!
