Windsor Manor Assisted Living Community and Story County Medical Center announced today that local neurologist, Dr. Selden Spencer, will be January’s featured speaker for the newly-formed Alzheimer’s Hope caregivers support group in Nevada.
Dr. Spencer is a board-certified neurologist and has extensive knowledge in the areas of memory loss and the effects it has on both the patient and caregiver. He will speak January 23 at 6pm on Memory Loss: The Challenges & The Solutions. The presentation will be held in the dining room of Windsor Manor, located at 1642 South G Avenue in Nevada, and is open to the public.
Caregivers interested in the support group, Alzheimer’s Hope, may be find that a support group is one of most common and effective ways of dealing with a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. The care-giving journey takes its toll on the mind, strength, body and spiritual well-being. Attending support group meetings may increase a caregiver’s sense of well-being and allow for the sharing of resources, accomplishments, trials, laughs, tears and big decisions along the way. In addition, Windsor Manor will continue to partner with Story Medical and other local experts to bring informational sessions to participants.
