Caregiver Support

Caregiver support groups are for family and friends caring for adults aged 60 and older. Caregiving can be emotionally and physically demanding. The groups are a way for individuals to meet, share with and learn from others experiencing caregiving issues. Depending on the month, the groups may be open discussion or there may be a focused presentation. Support group benefits can include feeling less isolated, the ability to speak honestly without being judged, improving coping skills, and increasing knowledge of resources. Registration required.
