SAFFORD — With the number of COVID-19 cases dropping, and the number of people being vaccinated increasing, the Graham County Health Department is able to turn to other health issues facing the community, including Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
The Health Department will host Finding Meaning and Hope, a video discussion workshop for family members caring for someone with dementia.
“This helps caregivers in helping them regain hope and building resiliency,” said the Health Department’s Rosa Contreras. “It helps them address the complexities of ongoing loss associated with caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Giving them the skills to continue keeping them healthy and resilient, and having that support system as well.”
The workshops will take place at the Graham County Senior Center every Friday from April 2 to June 4, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
“I want it to be a place where you can come and share your experiences, and feel like family,” Contreras said. “We all have family members that have gone through something similar, so having that extra ‘family’ outside and . . . being connected to resources and that warm hand-off to services.”
