Alzheimer’s Support Group

We offer a weekly support group for families and friends who are caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This support group provides guidance, solace, and fellowship to caregivers. We invite you to share your experiences and learn tools to help manage this disease.

The Alzheimer’s Support Group is sponsored by Shallowford Presbyterian Church, and led by Shallowford’s Parish Associate for Congregational Care, Rev. Laura H. Jernigan. If you are interested in joining, please email Rev. Laura H. Jernigan.
