The emotional and physical demands involved with caregiving can strain even the most capable person. That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of available help and support. Among the many tips that have helped others deal with caregiver stress, belonging to a support group ranks high.
A support group can be a great source for encouragement and advice from others in similar situations. It can also be a good place to make new friends.
Joining a group can reduce the isolation often involved in caregiving. It offers an opportunity to reach out and meet others who can share your struggles and joys.
The Western Connecticut Area Agency has created a comprehensive list of support groups in our region. Please note: we encourage you to call ahead to confirm that the group will meet as scheduled.
Thank you to Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging for providing this information!
