FMH Starts a Dementia Caregivers Support Group

Fairfield Memorial Hospital is starting a Dementia Caregivers Support Group to engage caregivers in conversation and ensure all members a safe haven in expressing personal feelings.  We understand that being a caregiver can come with added stress and unclear guidelines that generate many emotions over time. That’s why here at Fairfield Memorial Hospital we want you to know you are not alone. This support group is designed to lift up caregivers, and to create conversation. Caring takes courage!

“Working in the Skilled Care Unit at Fairfield Memorial Hospital opens your eyes to the struggles caregivers face each and every day. We find it necessary to lift one another up and create discussion by starting the Dementia Caregivers Support Group.  Support groups can be extremely beneficial, allowing caregivers to talk to others who are experiencing the same joys and challenges, and who can offer valuable insights and suggestions,” said Mariah Minor, RN, BSN, Skilled Care Unit Nurse Leader.

“Here at Fairfield Memorial Hospital it is important to ask questions, get advice and find support. The Dementia Caregivers Support Group will allow individuals to do just that when they are welcomed into an open environment full of helpful and supportive conversation. We find it extremely vital to help in any way we find possible to our patients and to the people who provide care to family or a loved one going through a difficult time.” stated FMH CEO, Katherine Bunting-Williams, Ph.D.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital’s Dementia Caregivers Support Group will hold their first meeting on July 25th at 1:30pm in the Horizon Healthcare Medical Arts Complex Education Rooms.  Light refreshments will be served. These meetings will be held every 4th Thursday of the month.  To learn more information about this support group, contact Mariah Minor, RN BSN, Skilled Care Unit Nurse Leader, at 618-847-8328.
