Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Alzheimer's and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin has developed a new program, The Caregiving Journey: Middle Stage Dementia, which combines presentation, group discussion and role playing to help caregivers develop new skills.

The two-part program will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon April 19 and 26 at the Behring Senior Center, 1113 10th St., Monroe. The program is designed specifically for each session's participants and gives caregivers the opportunity to learn and practice strategies they can use immediately.

Through the course of the program, participants will gain insight into their own strengths and challenges as caregivers; will enhance coping skills related to caregiving responsibilities; and develop an individualized plan of care.

Registration and an informational interview are required prior to attending. For more information, contact Deanna Truedson at 608-843-3402 or email

The Caregiving Journey: Middle Stage Dementia was developed by ADAW with funding from Bader Philanthropies.
