Amazing Place, a faith-based non-profit organization empowering lives disrupted by dementia, is expanding its current programs in Katy which support caregivers and their loved ones with dementia to include a Dementia Caregiver Support Group as well as a Memory Training Course.
The new monthly Dementia Caregiver Support Group will be held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6-7:30pm beginning October 9, 2018 at 20018 Chateau Drive in Katy, TX 77450. The confidential group, led by Ariana Detert, MSW, LCSW, is designed to allow caregivers dealing with loved ones at various stages of dementia to share their concerns, thoughts and feelings with others in similar situations. To attend the group, please contact Ariana Detert, MSW, LCSW at 281.217.3077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The four-week, two-hour Memory Training Course, is designed for anyone interested in improving memory and concerned about normal age-related memory concerns. The innovative program, designed by Gary Small, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the UCLA Longevity Center and Linda Ercoli, Ph.D., will help attendees learn tips for remembering names and faces; recalling appointments, message and plans; avoiding misplacing objects; and overcoming “tip of the tongue” memory slips. This course runs Wednesdays, Oct. 17, Oct. 24, 31 and Nov. 7 from 10am-12pm at Oak Park Residence, 1921 S. Mason Road, Katy, 77450 and the cost is $80. To register for this course, please email your name, email and phone number to email@example.com by October 12th. Questions, contact, Sally Davis, RN, MSN at 713.552.0420.
These new programs augment the Amazing Place-sponsored Memory Café in Katy which continues to offer a place for those with early stage dementia and their caregivers to join others for coffee, conversation and activities–from 10-11:30am on the third Saturday of each month at 20018 Chateau Bend Drive.
For more information about any of these programs, please contact Ariana Detert, MSW, LCSW at 281.217.3077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
