Join CARES for a unique, no-cost group which aims to educate and support professional and family caregivers in a relaxed setting. Facilitated by a licensed master social worker, the group will follow a well-established curriculum known to improve the well-being of caregivers.

 

Specific Topics Covered:

•             What it means to be a caregiver

•             Taking care of yourself

•             Building cooperative relationships

•             Preventing and solving problems

•             Accessing and developing resources

 

Participants will learn ways to cope with the stresses and strains of being a caregiver and about resources available locally, regionally and nationally. Group members will have the opportunity to learn from and support one another, share common concerns and promote solutions to everyday caregiving challenges.

For those interested, professional in-home caregiver services may be arranged at no charge so that your loved one will have care at home while you attend group meetings.
