Care Givers Conference Banner

Did you know that more than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s right now?  By 2050, the number of people 65 and older with Alzheimer’s and dementia is projected to be around 12.7 million. What we know to be true is that behind every person who is dealing with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other related issues there is a caregiver doing their best to provide all the help, support and care they can for their loved one.

Alpharetta Methodist strives to help those impacted along with their families and friends. One way we do this is by providing Caring for Caregivers Conferences twice a year. We also have two Caregiver Support Groups that meet regularly to offer community and support. Our website offers resources as well.

If you, your family and or friends find yourself in a place of being a Caregiver or you are the one dealing Alzheimer’s or dementia we are here to offer support, encouragement and share some resources. Please contact Rev. Terri Henkel to learn more about these resources. Sign up for the Caring for Caregivers Conference below.

Free Conference for Caregivers

Saturday, Oct. 1
9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Behind just about every senior suffering with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is a caregiver.
But who takes care of the caregivers?

This free seminar is designed for those who care for family members due to age and/or illness.
You’ll be encouraged and prayed for, and you’ll hear from experts about issues that are important to you.
