A NEW CAREGIVERS SUPPORT GROUP IS FORMING

This is a group of up to 8 GNPS members who come together to help each other by informally sharing their experiences and feelings as caregivers for someone who is important to them. Information is exchanged regarding the help that may be available in various situations as well as the opportunity to express emotional and practical problems in the caregivers' daily lives. This has been a helpful and rewarding experience for group members as it has given a chance to offset the often lonely life of caregiving. The group creates an atmosphere of acceptance and optimism, which is often needed in dealing with the daily and long term burdens of being a care giver. If you are interested, please contact Dick Nininger for further information.
