Caregiver Support Group @ Health & Human Services Center
Dec 6 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

The Caregivers Support Group provides a forum for those who are caring for a loved one to seek out information and gain support from others who are in a similar situation.

We are dedicated to support older adults and their families in our community through a variety of programs and services.

Various topics are discussed as well as Care & Share. Care & Share is a unique opportunity for group participants to connect with other caregivers as we share our challenges and our joys of caring for a loved one. Take advantage of this time to gain support as we learn useful tips for self-care from each other.
