An Alzheimer Family Support Group Project

By Herbert Bernstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1984

The author reports on a two year experience in initiating and leading an Alzheimer Family Support Group as a pilot service program for a family agency. He argues that in order to serve dementia patients and their families living in the community, family agencies have a responsibility to train social workers to work with this population. Social workers in turn have an obligation to learn to function in this complex area. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.61 no.2, Winter 1984.
