About the Event
Caregiving takes a major toll on the well-being of individuals. Family caregivers need support as they face major difficulties in meeting their loved ones’ needs, in addition to attempting to maintain their own emotional and physical health.
How support groups can address caregivers’ needs:
- Provide a place where caregivers can share their concerns and experiences.
- Provide a place to obtain information about resources and services.
- Provide a place to share ideas and suggestions on how to best handle their loved ones’ needs and their roles as a caregiver.
- Help to create a feeling of community, reduce stress and to provide an opportunity to share the rewarding and positive aspects of caregiving. (Duncan & Shtompel, 2022)
