CareGiver Support seeks to provide caregivers, their family, and friends with a sacred and emotionally safe space to share with each other the impact, struggles, and blessings related to the care of their loved ones over time.
CareGiver 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
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
One to two group facilitators, professionally trained in caregiving professions, co-lead the group, which meets four times from September through May. The format focuses on providing a safe and sacred space for open dialogue among caregivers in whatever aspects of caregiver support is needed. Caregivers need not be practicing Catholics or follow a Christian-based faith practice. There is no fee or pre-registration required.
