Taking Care when Giving Care: A Caregiver Support & Resource Group

Are you responsible for the care of an elderly or disabled loved one?

You are a caregiver whether you devote as little as 5 minutes a week or as much as 24 hours a day to someone you care for.

If you are...

  • A spouse feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities of caring for a mate
  • An adult child who is concerned about an aging parent
  • A friend who feels responsible for checking in on an ailing individual who may have no family
  • A sibling who visits a brother or sister on a regular basis
  • A person interested in being a caregiver

Join us as we explore caregiving and discuss such topics as:

  • Maintaining balance as a caregiver
  • How to cope with feelings of guilt and stress
  • Finding helpful resources to support the caregiver
  • Long-distance caregiving

This program is sponsored by Jewish Family Service and the Caregiver Assistance Network, and funded in part by the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio. Serving people of all faiths.
