Special speaker at Alzheimer’s Support Group

Speaker

Louanne Stanton

Louanne Stanton

Louanne Stanton will speak at the Alzheimer’s Support Group meeting Jan. 26 at Trinity Oaks.

Stanton will talk about grieving the death of a relationship, the effects of Alzheimer’s, and how families can deal with the guilt and pain that often accompanies a loved one entering a nursing home.

Stanton’s life experiences have helped shape her approach to teaching about grief. In 1996, her husband, a pastor, died of a blood disorder at the age of 35. As she navigated her own loss, Stanton says, she found her purpose in life: to help people work through grief.

The meeting, which will include a light meal, will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the special events room at The Lodge, the building that houses the independent living apartments at Trinity Oaks. The event is free, but those who want to attend should call Teresa Dakins, community outreach coordinator for the Trinity Oaks campus and Trinity Living Center, at 704-603-2776.
