Alzheimer’s Support Calendar

Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors supports the “Aging In Place” initiative in Yarmouth, led by Leigh Kirchner with support from a large group of volunteers. They received a block grant to conduct a survey of needs in Yarmouth, and used the survey results to develop a preliminary plan for services that was recently presented to our Town Council.

The following meeting calendar for a local Alzheimer’s support group is an example of a service that is becoming increasingly needed in our community as more and more of us are helping to care for an aging friend or relative.
