In accordance with an agreement signed with the Foundation Pasqual Maragall, Afaga will offer, from May on, therapeutic groups for caregivers.
The sessions will be held in Vigo and Porriño and they aim to give the caregiver the tools needed to look properly after his/her sick relative. Moreover, they aim to help the caregiver manage his/her emotions; that is to say, to learn how to deal with Alzheimer’s disease on a day by day basis.
This therapeutic group intervention will be led by a psychologist and it will be scientifically validated. There will be groups of 10 non-professional caregivers and the activity will be divided in 14 sessions of 90 minutes, one per week.
The sessions are free and the only commitment required is the session attendance.
