Caregiver Support Groups
Caring for a seriously ill or frail elderly loved one can be one of life’s greatest challenges. To be an effective caregiver, it is very important to take care of yourself (see our Tips for Caregivers). Hope HealthCare Services offers caregiver support groups, to explore ways of coping with many of the emotional and physical issues that accompany the role of caregiver.
These ongoing support groups are open to anyone in a caregiver role, at no cost. It’s an opportunity to learn from the experiences of others and to encourage those who are in similar circumstances. Call 855-454-3104 (toll-free) to learn more.
