Get by with a little help from Presbyterian SeniorCare
Alzheimer's support services are available at Woodside Place

Alzheimer's disease is life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. Having a helping hand when you need it is key to keeping yourself, and your loved one living with dementia, healthy and happy. At Woodside Place of Presbyterian SeniorCare, when you need a little help or an ear to listen, support services are available.

Adult Day Services

  • If you are a full-time caregiver, adult day services can provide a much needed break. While your loved one is away, you'll have time to rest, run errands or finish other tasks.
  • If you are a caregiver that works during the day, adult day services can be very helpful as you try to balance a job with caregiving duties.
  • For people with Alzheimer's and dementia, adult day services provide a chance to be social and to participate in activities such as music and exercise.

Support groups
Often times, caregivers say they are looking for support from people who "really understand because they've been there." An Alzheimer's Support Group offers just that – a place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet and develop a support system.

Support groups offer a place to:

  • Exchange information on caregiving problems and solutions
  • Talk through challenges and ways of coping
  • Share feelings, needs and concerns

Presbyterian SeniorCare, in affiliation with the Alzheimer's Association, holds support group meetings on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Woodside Place.
