Support Groups for Family Caregivers

VNA Community Healthcare offers a number of support groups each month for family caregivers at several locations. 


Here is how one caregiver has been helped:


Hi Molly (Standby) - I'm so glad that I went to the group meeting! It does help to know that there are others facing the same situation, and hopefully we can be of comfort to each other and share strategies.


Thank you so much for your encouragement, helpful tips, and being there to help!! It's a relief just to know there are resources there to call on. I signed up fmy husband for Tai Chi at the Sr. Center on Mondays. I'll have to get him there, but then the bus will bring him home after lunch -i t's a PLAN!
