Support Group for Caregivers ~ Online
This 4-week online pilot program offers current caregivers the opportunity to share their stories with other caregivers. The goal of this group is to provide an atmosphere that is favorable to the already busy and overwhelmed day of providing care. This online environment addresses topics of self-care, stress, and coping. Facilitated by a masters-level counselor, this Hope Grows online group will bring support and comfort right into your home.
