Because we don't want our caregivers to wear out before their loved one! When the need for physical and emotional support is continuous, it can be overwhelming no matter how much you love the person you are caring for. At The Club, we are here to help!
Alzheimer's Lecture Series
Caring for your loved one can be an overwhelming and stressful job. Especially if they have Alzheimer's disease or Related Dementias. We recognize the importance of education and respite for caregivers, so we've created the CareGiver Education Series. Every month, the Brevard Alzheimer's Foundation has an educational lecture or event for caregivers to learn things like what to do if mom won't take a shower, or what to say when dad thinks his daily medication is poison, or how to get rid of that ominous figure standing outside of the window. The education series consists of Fall and Spring lectures "Basics of Caregiving and More" with Janet Steiner, Fall and Spring "Caregiver Education & Resource Program" with Barbara Borman, Caregiver Cafes, Virtual Dementia Tours, Caregiver's "HI" Tea, and the Fearless Caregiver Conference. Each event gives caregivers an opportunity to learn and share, and strives to provide all who attend peace of mind.

"I don't know what I would have done without The Club. I got time back. I got my health and sanity back. It really put caring for my mom back within reality. Because of all the services that the Brevard Alzheimer's Foundation helped us with, she is stable, happier, and healthier than when I initially brought her down. I've been able to keep her at home, which is what we both wanted."

The Club really changed his life, and helped him until the end. The club not only helped Jack, but me as well. I depended heavily on the support groups, and received support until his passing.

Fred loved being at the club. He enjoyed people. He didn't like showers and other things but he liked the people who cared for him and really appreciated what you had to do to help him. Thank all of you. You are all doing a good job. We miss him so much but he is at peace at last.
