Caregiver support group
If you are a caregiver of a friend or a family member, please join us for a support and respite group. Adults 18 and older are eligible to participate. A support group can have significant positive effects on caregivers’ overall wellbeing. It is a chance to speak with other caregivers who have common experiences with caregiving, learn about resources available in the community and nationally, learn how to keep yourself healthy so you can better deliver the care, and a chance for respite.
The next scheduled Caregiver Support Group is scheduled for June 19 at 1 p.m. and will be facilitated by Elaine Stumpo.
Learn practical self-care information, talk through challenges and ways of coping, learn about community resources and support.
For more information, please call 264-2167.
