Legacy—it is something that we all want to leave, but what does it mean and how do we ensure that it happens? To equip our members for this journey, we have created an all-encompassing ministry rightfully named Legacy. It is for those who are in a current season of caregiving or empty nesting and for those who want to learn how to finish well. Legacy not only provides information on relevant topics through various classes and discussions, but also helps connect people in each of these seasons to each other through fellowship and community.

If you have a loved one with dementia, you know how overwhelming the diagnosis can be for family members and caregivers. We want to offer support through Getting to Know Dementia—a six-week class where you can learn more about how dementia is affecting your loved one, as well as how you can best connect with them through visual, verbal, and touch cues. Not only will this be an opportunity for learning more about dementia, but it will also provide a safe place for care partners to come together in community. This class will begin on October 10 at the Pelham RD campus
