    Name: The Holmstad Helping Hearts, Caregivers support group first Thursday of the month
    Date: December 7, 2017
    Time: 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM CST
    Event Description:
    Findings from an Alzheimer's Association survey released in June 2017 show that while people overwhelmingly agree it often takes a village to provide care for someone living with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia (91 percent), far too many caregivers are doing it alone. The Holmstad, a senior living community, is opening its doors and sharing its resources to help family members and caregivers address the challenges. The Holmstad Helping Hearts is a free family and caregivers support group that meets the first Thursday of the month, 1:30 ? 2:30 p.m. in the Town Center classroom at The Holmstad, located at 700 W. Fabyan Parkway, Batavia. Registration is not required to attend the support group, but you must reserve a spot for your loved one requiring care by calling Brenda Lowden, RN, at (630) 879-4034 or emailing her at BJLowden@covenantretirement.org. The care is provided free of charge. Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Jeanne Marie Snarich, will lead group discussions that will include managing and coping with difficult behaviors; self-care and coping skills; safety issues; connecting with your loved one who has dementia; stress management; telling others about the diagnosis and establishing boundaries; holiday blues/grief and loss; and acceptance and letting go. Educational materials and referral services will be provided. Refreshments will be served. About The Holmstad The Holmstad is a faith-based, not-for-profit, continuing care retirement community located at 700 W. Fabyan Parkway, Batavia, Ill. It is administered by Covenant Retirement Communities (CRC), the nation?s sixth largest not-for-profit senior services provider.

  • I am so thankful that a few of my fellow Batavian’s recommended the Batavia Chamber of Commerce to me.   Since I joined I feel as though I have been blessed with a second family with all the support and motivation I get from them on a regular basis.  Holly, Lindsey and Margaret are the most amazing women.  They have great passion for business and helping people. I truly feel they care about my business on a personal level and want to see it grow and succeed as much as I do!  They have gone the extra mile to get my name and my business name out there and introduce me to the business community.  The Chamber has so many opportunities available that have helped my business both grow and problem solve such as the free monthly Networking It events and the Home-Based Mastermind Group.  I highly recommend the Batavia Chamber of Commerce to all business professionals.
