In 2011, the Session of First Presbyterian Church Garner voted to sponsor an Alzheimer’s Support Group for members of the congregation, citizens of Garner and the surrounding community.
Volunteers received training through the parent organization of Alzheimer’s North Carolina to obtain the skills to facilitate the group. The Alzheimer’s Support Group meets the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Faith Formations classroom.

The meeting is open to caregivers, family members, neighbors and friends of individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. As a service to the Alzheimer’s Support Group, the Presbyterian Women provide sitters to be available during the meeting to be with the Alzheimer’s patients while the caregivers attend the meetings.
