Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.

CaregiverIf you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?

The group is facilitated by the Rev Dr. Linda Anderson. If you are interested in being part of such a group, please contact Rev Linda at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Upcoming meetings will be held on Thursdays, Jan. 21 and Feb. 4.
