THU. OCT 25 - AGA (ALIENATED GRANDPARENTS ANONYMOUS) MEETING AT THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
1:00 p.m. at the Sun City Center United Methodist Church. Thousands of American families choose to isolate themselves from the influence and interaction of their parents by severely restricting, controlling and/or denying contact between their children and the children’s grandparents. The effects of this rift can be severe, especially if a bond between the grandparent and grandchild has already been formed.  Grandparents are an intricate part of raising and loving a child unconditionally, and can serve as outstanding role models.  Studies have shown that multi-generational contact between children and their grandparents provides a special foundation of unconditional love and nurturing which is healthy for children; and, can significantly affect the children’s academic, psychological, and social development. If death takes a grandparent from a child, that is a tragedy; but if family bickering and vindictiveness deny children the love of a grandparent, that’s an emotional and psychological shame and causes harm to all the parties involved. Studies show that the best form of help for those suffering from complicated grief, grief without closure, is to attend a peer led support group. Professionals in the fields of mental health, medicine, religion, law, education, and elder abuse have joined together to offer an anonymous support group for grandparents experiencing the sadness and emotional pain associated Grandparent/Parental Alienation.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the Coalition office at Sun Towers, 101 Trinity Lakkes Drive, Sun City Center, Suite 254.  Did you know a vitamin deficiency can exhibit the same symptom as dementia? With annual memory screenings, you will be able to identify a decline in memory in order to address it and hopefully reverse it altogether which is the goal of the Coalition! Maintaining good brain health begins with a simple screening to establish a baseline score. This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline. Make your appointment today to have your memory screened along with your hearing. By appointment only. To schedule, call the Coalition at 813-419-4902 Interested in learning more about Clinical?
