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.
