We’re switching focuses with our Vineyard Henderson newsletters!

Vineyard Support Group – August 29 

One of the events we’re most excited to host is our monthly Vineyard Support Group for families affected by dementia or Alzheimers. Traditionally, support groups only include caregivers and family members, but not the person suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. At Vineyard, we foster an inclusive and welcoming environment. Our support group is open to caregivers, family members, and those with memory-related conditions. 

We’re also happy to announce that we’ve partnered with both UNLV and Touro University. LCSW and OT department students will join us to offer their expertise, help moderate the session, and engage with members of the support group. 

In addition, our dear partners from Carrying on the Legacy of Frank Perone, have generously donated customized Dementia Care Packages for each individual in attendance for August’s session. (Learn more about their cause below).

Please note, because of the unique experience offered by the Vineyard Support Group, as well as keeping the session intimate and productive, we have a limited number of spots available. 

  • Thursday, August 29th, 2pm-3pm at the Leasing Office 
  • Space is limited; please contact us to RSVP, or do so on Facebook
