Mug Club for Caregivers (Support Group) @ Dodgeville Public Library

Mug Club for Caregivers (Support Group) @ Dodgeville Public Library | Dodgeville | Wisconsin | United States

The Mug Club for 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.

Meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month from 10:30 AM-Noon. Dodgeville Public Library, 139 S. Iowa Street, Dodgeville. Call (608) 930-9835 for more information.
