Support Groups

If you are looking for a place to share your concerns and receive some emotional support and coping suggestions from an experienced, compassionate leader and others in the group who may share the same challenges you face, please join us at our monthly caregiver support group! Below are some great reasons to join a support group.

10 REASONS FOR JOINING A SUPPORT GROUP

  • It is the only place I can say what I feel and people understand.
  • I can be angry about how I was dealt a blow by fate and the others will not say I shouldn’t feel that way.
  • I can find help on how to handle difficult behavior problems from others who have dealt with the same situations.
  • I learn that I can not and should not be the only one responsible for caring for my loved one who has the disease.
  • I learn where to go for help in caring for my loved one.
  • I realize it’s possible to laugh at some of the impossible, crazy things that happen during the day.
  • I learn to stop trying to teach or reason with my loved one and instead accept that the way she/he sees things is very real for her/him.
  • I discovered that it is important to have some time for myself to do the things I want and not feel guilty.
  • I become aware of how much it helps to know I’m not the only one in the world going through this nightmare.
  • I find I can cope better with the support and caring understanding of the others in the support group.
