Home Instead Senior Care of Berkshire County provides a support group for people living with early stage dementia, and a separate group for their care partners, both meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, at Home Instead, 66 Wendell Ave.

Those living with dementia can learn more about memory loss, share thoughts, ideas, and feelings with one another, and also participate in some engaging activities.

The caregiver group, facilitated by Donna Smith and Bobbie Orsi, RN, is open to family caregivers including spouses/partners, adult children and other family members.

Registration is required by calling Orsi at 413-442-0907.
