The Alzheimer's Association Michigan Chapter has announced its free virtual support groups, education programs and social engagement programs for July.

“Persons with dementia, their caregivers and all those impacted by dementia need our help and support now more than ever,” said Jean Barnas, Alzheimer’s Association program services director. “Our groups, programs and events offer emotional support, provide much-needed information about memory loss and dementia, and — thanks to wonderful partners such as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and The Henry Ford — help persons with dementia and their care partners find ways to remain socially active.”
