Caregiver Support Group Meets

Pam Brandon becomes the new facilitator of Caregiver Support Group on Feb. 27. The organization meets in the class room of the new Ennis Regional Medical Center, 2201 W. Lampasas, Ennis.

The group meets in affiliation with the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas Area  to aid family members who are caregivers for victims of health problems. This offers their caregiver the ability to attend a medical information class. The class offers training on possible ways to offer better care, and ideas to help us work with doctors and/or any medical team. We gain the latest information on all types of disabilities to share with all caregivers so they may discuss this with the doctor.
