The Alzheimer’s Association will begin hosting a monthly family caregiver support group in Monroe in September.

Meetings will be held 10:30 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month at Monroe Family Counseling Associates, 1129 W. Main St., Suite 94.

“Alzheimer’s Association family caregiver support groups provide a consistent and caring place for people to learn, share and gain emotional support from others who are also on a unique journey of providing care to a person with memory loss,” states an association news release.

For more information, call Lou Ann Carter at 360-722-1471 or the 24-hour helpline at 1-800-272-3900. More information about the Alzheimer’s Association is at
