Event Details

Join us for a special program honoring those we’ve lost to Alzheimer’s or other forms of Dementia.

All are welcome to gather for a time of education, discussion, sharing, and memory making. We will offer education, discussion around caregiving, and the opportunity to share about your personal experience and listen to others.

All will be invited to participate in creating a memorial that represents your loved one or personal experience with grief by rock painting.

Refreshments will be provided.

The loss of loved ones to Alzheimer’s or other Dementias creates a unique grief process. In this program. grief couselors from the Heartlight Center create a safe and supportive environment.

including caring for her grandmother who had an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Allison recognizes that while
grief is a universal human experience, it is also a very unique experience to each individual. Allison
