Alzheimer’s support group supporting caregivers in Harrison County


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The Harrison County Senior Citizens Center is offering an Alzheimer’s support group for caregivers.

The group aims to help caregivers learn and understand how to take care of someone suffering from Alzheimer’s.

It also helps provide resources to the group, as well as support for caregivers.

“There’s no easy answer. I wish there was. I wish we could say, ‘well, if you do A-B-C, D will happen. No, unfortunately, we’re dealing with human beings. And, what we do in support group is try to reduce the frustration of the caregiver,” said Judy Labdik, the presenter for the group.
