Caregiver Support Group

Caring for your spouse or loved one can be both rewarding and challenging. This confidential support group is for men or women taking care of another person, be it their spouse, friend or family member. The group discusses current stressful situations that involve caregiving, and participants problem solve to find solutions and appropriate ways of coping. Educational material, tips and techniques are always included to help you as a caregiver. Individuals may attend on a regular or occasional basis.

Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 9:30-11:30. Please plan to arrive by 9:15 your first visit. If you’d like to attend the Caregiver Support Group, please call 989-633-3700 for more information.
