Caregivers Support Group

Being a caregiver isn’t limited to those who provide physical and emotional care to a person in their home. Care-giving extends to those who endeavor to handle issues and be supportive from afar often across cities or states. Those who have persons in health care facilities such as assisted living, nursing homes, or memory care facilities may not be responsible for direct care but still carry a caregiving responsibility. You may be caring for parents, siblings, spouses, or others in their home or yours. You may be extending care to neighbors or friends.

Whatever your level of involvement, recognizing and accepting your feelings and emotions is important. Many times, you may not know what to do or whether to do anything at all. You may feel embarrassed or guilty about your feelings of frustration, resentment, and anger.

A support group of others facing similar issues can help you understand that such feelings are common, and you are not a “bad person”. A group like this can often suggest strategies that worked for them; this is especially helpful when dealing with dementia.

The Caregiver Support Group meets the third Sunday of the month at 3 p.m. at the church, beginning September 17th. It is open to all caregivers not just those who are dealing with dementia. You can get more information by contacting Sherron at info@middletownumc.org.
