Due to inclement weather, all daytime in-person programs have been canceled for Thursday, Feb. 9 at each of our locations and the cafe and bookstore at the Leawood location are closed until 5 pm. Evening programs will be held, as scheduled.
We are watching the weather and at this time the Car Show is still on as scheduled for the public, open from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. We will keep you updated as conditions change.
It’s really hard providing long-term health care for loved ones, and we want to be here to support you. We currently have two caregiver support groups – a general caregiver group (online option) and a group more specific to those caring for loved ones experiencing dementia (in person only). Please refer to the information below for how to gain access to those meetings.
2nd Tuesdays, 2-3:30 pm: Join us in person at our Leawood location in Room B153 or online through Zoom – we are offering a hybrid class, having some folks join in person and some join online. This group is led by Reverend Emily Stirewalt and is a general caregiver support group which includes faith-based resources for support, prayer, and a brief devotional.
For information about these meetings, please email Emily Stirewalt at or call her at 913-232-4126.
2nd Tuesdays, 2-3:30 pm: Meets at the Leawood location in Room B152. This is a dementia specific caregiver support group for those care partners with a loved one in the early stages of dementia. This class is led by Amy Yeager, LMSW KU ADC, from KU Alzheimer’s Disease Center. A coordinating support group for those experiencing mild cognitive impairment or early-stage Alzheimer’s or Dementia meets at the same time. Learn more about that support group here.
For more information about these meetings, please call Amy Yeager at (913) 945-7663.
