Beyond Alzheimer’s is for anyone who needs support in dealing with the loneliness, pain, and loss of Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s affects more than 5 million Americans, and their caregivers need support and care, too.
Patti founded a support group for caregivers and family member of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Formerly located at Saint John’s/Providence Health Center, Patti worked with co-facilitators form the medical field allowing caregivers to have clinical and emotional support. She created a place for caregivers to go and have someone to ask, “How are you doing?”
