You may feel that you are the only one dealing with a loved one who is demanding, difficult, or belligerent. You may feel sad that your loved one is in need and confused about your new role as caregiver.
Support groups encourage caregivers to care for themselves and serve as a reminder that it is not selfish for caregivers to attend to their own needs. Come join our safe, secure online support group where we will address all issues in a non-judgmental environment and will discuss the opportunities and challenges of caring for a loved one. We understand how hard it is for you to leave the house, so take advantage of the JFS Online Support Group Project so we can come to you. All you need is a computer with Internet access!
Wednesdays, 2 – 3 pm
