Care Givers Support Group
Meets 2nd Wednesday of each month, 7:30 pm, church library
The group’s purpose is to help / support those individuals who find themselves as caregivers, whether in a primary or secondary role. In addition to providing emotional support, the group has discussed financial and legal concerns among various topics.
For most of us, being a caregiver for a loved one causes a full range of emotions to be felt. It can also affect the health and well-being of the caregiver themselves due to the “overwhelming” situation they find themselves in. Having a group of people, that are experiencing the same problems and concerns, is important as it is very easy for the caregiver to feel isolated. Facilitated by Rev. Georgianna Brabban-Johnson, Georgianna@mchsi.com.
