Call Sherri Goldstein at 609.819.1226 to attend.
Caregiving can be isolating, but you are not alone! In this group, spouses, family members, neighbors, friends, and other caregivers share information, suggestions, and support about the joys and challenges of taking care of loved ones — at home, at a distance, or in a care facility — for any medical diagnosis.
Join us as we learn from and validate each other through our similar and divergent challenges and experiences and share openly, without judgement. Whether it be asking for advice, sharing useful resources, or even just venting frustrations, the Caregivers Group is a great place to discover practical solutions and cope with stress in a supportive and positive setting.
Facilitator: PSRC Care Coordinator Nicole Maccarone, LCSW, LCADC
