Caregivers’ Support Group
A prolonged physical illness or debilitating condition certainly takes a toll on the person with the disease, but it also affects those who love and care for him or her. Too often, caregivers feel like they are all alone with their situations. That’s why Grace Cottage is offering a free caregivers’ support group. Planned as a six-week series, the group will begin meeting on Monday, February 22, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The group’s leader will be Caroline Chase, behavioral health specialist and a member of the Grace Cottage Community Health Team. The focus will be on looking after yourself while helping a loved one. Group discussions will provide emotional support and help caregivers understand and recognize the various stressors impacting them while caring for a loved one. The group will meet in the Grace Cottage Community Wellness Center’s Holt Conference room, 133 Grafton Road/Route 35, Townshend. To register for this free workshop, call Caroline Chase at 802-365-3715 extension 6.
