Support for Families Dealing with Alzheimers

Tzipporah Fried Alzheimer Support Center hosted a hands-on day event at Ezer Mizion’s Jacob Fried Building in Bnei Brak that included a music workshop and a phototherapy workshop. The program was geared for family member caregivers of Alzheimer patients who are living at home. The event gave caregivers an empowering experience, a chance to get out, and tools for working with the patient at home. Audience response was enthusiastic and impressive. Since we had workshops, rather than speakers, space was limited and advance registration was required. 64 caregivers took part in the program coming from as far as Jerusalem, Haifa, and even one all the way from Tzefat. Participants indicated high satisfaction on feedback forms. Primarily, they expressed the real need to hold more events like this one.
