This group meets the second Saturday of every month (except August) at Rush Oak Park Hospital in the Centennial Room.
The program is an educational and support group for both care-partners and patients. More advanced patients are welcome, though the group is not exclusive to patients at other stages. This group begins with a continental breakfast at 9:30am, followed by an hour-long education series. In the last hour, patients and care-partners split into two groups to discuss separately.
Meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month, 6 to 8 p.m.
