Caregiver Support

While rewarding, caring for an aging or ill family member can also be stressful and exhausting. We invite you to visit our CJFS Caregivers Support Group that meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month, from 1-2 pm. It is held at our CARES Respite program location at 3794 Crosshaven Drive (former St. John's Church of the Deaf). The group is designed to help provide an opportunity for caregivers to find mutual emotional support. Caregivers exchange coping skills, support and motivate one another, share community resources, and learn from experts in matters related to caregiving. Please see the brochure below to learn more about the monthly topics.

This is a free program and is open to the public.
