Online Caregiver Classes and Support Groups

Caregiving is never easy, even during the best of times and caregivers need all the support they can get.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 health crisis has caused us to cancel all group gatherings including our Caregiver Support Group, Assisting Older Adults classes, and Powerful Tools for Caregivers® workshops until further notice.  It is always preferred to conduct such programming in-person, but times have changed. We still want support our caregivers during this crisis and and even after this crisis is over through the introduction of online caregiver classes and support groups. We are trying to see if there is any interest in online support. Please give us a call or email us and let us know what your needs are.

 If you are interested in an online support group and/or future online caregiver classes, please contact Lisa Hughes for more information.
