Caregiver Support 

A Safe, and Sacred Space to Share

CareGivers Support is a place to share experiences, hardships, and even blessings associated with providing regular care to a family member or friend across a continuum of medical or mental health disease processes.

CareGivers Support does not provide psychotherapy, financial support, grief counseling, or social work services. The ministry is not partial to, nor supports, any particular caregiving milieus (e.g., home care, hospice, nursing home, or agency). Family and friends of those parishioner participants are welcome to attend as well.

CARING for the

CAREGIVER

There are only four kinds of people in the world:

1. Those who have been caregivers,

2. Those who are currently caregivers,

3. Those who will be caregivers, and

4. Those who will need caregivers.

- Rosalynn Carter, Former First Lady
