Letter: Help for those affected by dementia

Graphic by Lori Deaton

We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation for your community publication. It has been a source of great articles and a vast amount of information provided to our metro and surrounding areas in Asheville.

This public awareness announcement is to provide help for our metro and surrounding areas. Our support group is a partnership with persons diagnosed with first-stage dementia, family members and caregivers. We are a support group providing a social setting for individuals to meet and discuss coping techniques, share experiences and present resource speakers from a variety of agencies. It is our focus on this dementia journey path to hold hands together.

We have two meetings scheduled for Sept. 22 and Oct. 6, 6-7 p.m., at Scenic View Terrace Clubhouse, 60 Fallen Spruce Drive, Asheville. We hope to have future meetings every first and third Thursday of each month.

If you have any questions, please call 828-450-8888.

— Vernon and Joyce Robinson


Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.
