Donn's Friends: Alzheimer's Support for Loved Ones and Caregivers

Join us on Tuesday, November 13 at 7 p.m. to learn about Donn's Friends, an innovative new program from the Flower Mound Senior Center. Each month, people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia are invited to visit for brain-stimulating activities and games including discussion groups, crafts, and singing. Meanwhile, their caregivers are given a break to socialize with other caregivers, learn helpful tips, and discover resources. Learn the story about how Donn's Friends became a SIM program, how to get involved, and resources for caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's and dementia. To register, please call 972.874.6165 or email the Library.
