Question:

My 62 year old sister-in-law is diagnosed as having degenerative bi-polar manic depressive with paranoid schizophrenic tendencies. Is there a class or group in the Dayton area on how to deal with this disease?

Answer:

I do not know of any class or program in the Dayton area. However, I would suggest contacting the Office of Geriatric Medicine at Wright State University in Dayton. The address is listed below. Someone there may be able to help you. You can also go to the Internet and type in Bipolar Disorder. There are a number of links which may be of help to you.
