Caregiver Support 

In our community, many individuals are providing care and support for a relative or friend yet the needs of the caregivers are often overlooked, even by the caregivers themselves.

The Caregiver Support Program promotes open discussions on the frustrations that accompany care giving, but more importantly, the opportunity to identify skills and activities caregivers can develop to improve their level of support and strategies to manage stress in order to prevent 'burnout'.

Participation is by registration.

  • Two Caregiver Support programs are offered.
  • Our evening 8 week group meets for one hour on Tuesday evenings
  •  Our day time group meets for an hour and half on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
  • Both groups explore common experiences in being the primary caregiver. Support is available from experienced facilitators, staff and other community resources. 
  • Please click here for a short video on the benefits of the Caregiver Support Group.
