Alzheimer’s caregivers

The Alzheimer Association Caregiver Support Group at Blue Mountain Health System meets monthly from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the third-floor conference room at the Palmerton campus at 135 Lafayette Ave. in Palmerton. The next meeting will be Monday.

Donna Kravelk, a registered nurse on the Older Adult Behavioral Health Unit at BMHS, will facilitate the group. The intent will be to provide emotional, educational and social support for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

Meetings are free of charge and anyone seeking support and knowledge of Alzheimer’s and dementia are welcome to attend. To register, or for more information, email Kravelk at dmkatz407@verizon.net or call 610-826-1294.
