I went to my first Alzheimer's support group today. There actually is a local Lewy Body support group, but the first meeting I went to only had three people so it wasn't a place where I could get ideas from people with more experience of local resources. The group I went to today was about 15 people, a good size, but an odd mix with as many new people and and people still coming after their loved one had died as there were people in the middle of the process.
I did find the conversation useful--much of it about strategies for how to redirect someone. No one had any leads for for me on home renovation. I do have a couple of leads I have already been given that I haven't tracked down yet, particularly that my university has a Center for Engaged Aging (sounds like a tongue twister to me).
I think today's group would be useful if I were willing to make the commitment to go every month, but a weekday afternoon isn't an easy time for me. I'm going to try an evening Alzheimer's group in the next town over, which I should be able to get to more regularly. I'm spoiled by the Yahoo LBD spouses group, which is such a wise and frank group of people who have become experts the hard way.
