dementia caregivers' support groupWith Alzheimer’s and dementia affecting so many in the Norwell area, we at North River Home Care want to do all we can to provide the necessary support and resources that family caregivers need.

We’re therefore pleased to announce the launch of our new monthly Dementia Caregivers’ Support Group, led by Nadine Shweiri, RN, the Independent Living Director at Fairing Way campus. Nadine brings over twenty years’ experience in caregiving to the senior industry. For the past several years, Nadine’s career path has focused exclusively on senior living for older adults with dementia. She works with staff, seniors with dementia and their families and caregivers to develop tools to improve communication and maximize quality of life.

The group will meet the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m., beginning October 10, at North River Home Care’s office at 275 Longwater Drive, Norwell, in Assinippi Industrial Park.

Benefits of the support group include:

  • Connecting with others
  • Learning from other caregivers
  • Revealing new research and information from the facilitator
  • Underscoring resources within the greater South Shore community
  • Coping strategies for caregivers

Light refreshments will be provided. To register for the support group, please email Nadine Shweiri at nshweiri@fairingway.org.

We hope to see you on October 10!
