More than 1 in 5 Americans are caregivers, and more than half of these caregivers feel their role has given them a sense of purpose and meaning. However, that doesn’t mean caregiving comes without its challenges.
The Caregiver Support Group, held at St. Joseph Hospital Senior Resource Center, provides a safe space where caregivers can discuss common challenges, work through difficult emotions specific to caregiving, and increase their current coping skills. Topics of discussion include understanding the barriers to asking for help, how relationships change with those around you, navigating the role of advocate in the home, and more.
The Caregiver Support Group will be held on numerous dates and times throughout October, November, and December of 2023.
All are welcome to attend this free event, and pre-registration is required. To register, please contact Tara Collins, Manager of Mission Integration, at (603) 884-3306.
