    To allow caregivers the opportunity to attend the support group, a newly-offered service will provide care for care receivers. Caregivers can make arrangements for adults they care for by calling Andover Court at 316-733-2662 prior to the meeting date.
    This group offers an opportunity for education, mutual support and problem-solving with others who are dealing with similar situations. This includes caregivers whose care receiver has any illness, including dementia.
