It is with great pleasure that JGS Lifecare announces they will be resuming their caregiver support group in person beginning Tuesday, January 10th, 2023. It will run the second and fourth weeks from January through April. Skipping April 11th (Passover). Our last meeting will be April 25th. This group is for active caregivers (in any amount or capacity) who are caring for someone living with dementia (of all types and stages). This is of no cost to the participants.

Caregiver support groups are ongoing meetings that provide caregivers a forum to connect with other caregivers where they can share issues, needs, concerns, and feelings in a confidential, safe, supportive, non-threatening and non-judgmental atmosphere. It’s a place where you know that everyone in the group understands your caregiving journey because they are experiencing the same or similar circumstances. This is a peer group, where each participant is free to share their issues as well as solutions and suggestions to help fellow group members.
