Caregivers’ Support Team
The Caregivers’ Support team is dedicated to helping those who find themselves in the position of giving long term care to family members and friends. Our goal is to help them find ways to maximize the blessing and minimize the stress. We are continuing to develop and implement means of encouraging and informing caregivers through helpful presentations, a file of care resources, phone calls, cards, prayers and follow up visits.

Dementia Caregivers’ Support Group
Meets the last Wednesday of each month from 1-2:30pm in G1
The Dementia Caregivers Support Group has a goal of ministering to the
growing number of adults who care for friends and family affected by the many
forms of Dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. By keeping the Caregivers healthy, informed, and encouraged there is a better outlook for the patient and the caregiver and less likelihood that they will both literally disappear from the “Body of Believers” with whom they used to worship and serve regularly. In addition to the training and information our Facilitators have received from the Alzheimer’s Association they also hold an abiding faith and trust in Christ as Lord and Savior and therefore offer members continuing intercessory prayer and encouragement based on the Word of God.
