Jonesboro, AR ~ Helping you discover ways to handle caregiver challenges are very important to us at the UAMS Centers on Aging and Schmieding Caregiver Training Program. Coming up this week and next in Jonesboro are 2 events that will help caregivers meet those challenges with less difficulty.

  1. A Caregiver Support Group for families of those living with Alzheimer’s.  This monthly meeting, in cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Association, is provided free of charge for family caregivers. Knowing what to expect and having access to the resources and support available can be empowering and lead to an increased commitment to your loved one.  We are determined to help your through this together.
