This group meets in Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month, beginning May 10, 2022.
Facilitated by Ebony Leary, Dr. JoyBeth Lufty, and Monica Mullen
December topic: TBD
Our Mission: Our group provides education, support and spiritual food for care givers.
Caregivers are men, women, young, old, from every corner of the world and every way of life. They care for their parents, spouses, siblings, friends, and children. They do the hard work of taking care of the vulnerable among us often without requesting the responsibility. This group is for you… the Givers.
What are the benefits of our Support Group? Our intention is to provide you with valuable tools and resources that make your life easier and to connect you with your most valuable resource, each other. By doing so we hope collectively you will teach us what you need and how to best support you.
