During August 2019, our 1st Tuesday Dementia Support Group started meeting at the Beach Chamber, 309 R. Jackson Blvd, PCB with Dementia Family Pathways hosting our event. Prior to COVID 19, we met in-person every 1st Tuesday of the month at the Beach Chamber. During COVID 19, we have been using Zoom to stay connected. Beginning June 2020, there will be limited space to meet in-person at the Beach Chamber due to social distancing. Anyone who wants to attend in-person or receive a Zoom invitation should contact Karen McGee by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Dementia Support Group is free and open to the public. When we were able to meet in-person, refreshments were provided by The Blake at Panama City Beach. There is a guest speaker each month who discusses Dementia-specific topics, resources, activities, exercise programs, medications, and more. We use Senior Gems and Positive Physical Approach to provide Care partners with strategies for managing difficult behaviors, training for planning a meaningful day, and techniques to create moments of joy for people living with Dementia. The Care partners who attend have common interests, challenges, and concerns. During our Dementia Support Group meetings, most of our time is spent learning about the Care partners’ life experiences and problem solving solutions.
