CAREGIVERS

ABOUT

Whatever your age, you are a caregiver if you provide care that helps a person who is frail, elderly or disabled.

 

The Caregiver Support Group at St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is co-sponsored by Catholic Social Service of Southwest Ohio.

 

Caregivers meet the first Tuesday of the month, from 7pm – 8:30pm in the church basement. Anyone from the community is welcome to attend. The purpose of the meetings and the group is:

  • To help caregivers learn to take care of themselves and to know that they are not alone.

  • Provide opportunities to express feelings in a supportive, non-threatening and non-judgmental atmosphere.

  • Provide understanding of normal aging as well as abnormal changes that need attention.

  • Share what works and what doesn’t work in care giving.

  • Improve the quality of relationships of caregivers and care-receivers.

  • Provide timely, practical education on the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of care giving.
