With Arizona predicted to have the highest number of Alzheimer’s/Dementia cases in the nation by 2025, Cochise Health & Social Services is offering a program designed to help caregivers.

The “Finding Meaning & Hope” program is a free, 10-week course which runs every Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. from September 11 until November 13.

The goal is to provide caregivers with techniques to reduce stress and gain resiliency.

“Caring for a family member often takes a tremendous toll,” said Health Educator Alexandra Rivera. “We encourage local caregivers to take advantage of this course to help them with their own health and well-being.”

The course will be held at the Ethel H. Berger Center, 2950 E. Tacoma Street, Sierra Vista. Caregivers can watch a video to find out more about the program at:
