Garnet Health to Offer Free Virtual Caregivers Support Group
May 10, 2021
Garnet Health’s Community Health Department will offer a free, virtual support group, called Partners in Caring, the third Tuesday of each month beginning May 18, 2021.
For those caring for a loved one, the day-to-day tasks of making sure the person they are caring for is comfortable, safe, and provided for can mean that caregivers neglect their own well-being. Our caregiver support group can provide a meaningful time that is set aside for the caregiver to focus on their own feelings and needs.
“Partners in Caring support group provides an ideal setting for information sharing, insight, advice and encouragement.” says Moira Mencher, MBA, Manager of Physician Relations & Community Health. “It offers participants an opportunity to learn from others who face the same challenges and allows them to talk about their experiences.”
This group will share knowledge through presentations and will provide a safe space for socialization and group discussions. Partners in Caring will also provide support for caregivers to help them create a balance between family, work and other responsibilities.
