Caregiver Support Group
Caregiver Support Groups meet every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, from 3:30 p.m to 5 p.m. This is a free event.
Location: Northern Dutchess Hospital 6511 Springbrook Avenue, Rhinebeck, NY 12601
This interactive group is meant to provide caregivers with the tools necessary for providing care for older family members. Though it can be rewarding, the experience can also be stressful and place an emotional burden on the caregiver. The group will offer caregivers the opportunity to share their own personal experiences and to listen and learn from others who are going through similar situations. The group also offers self-care and stress reduction techniques, along with discussions about the emotional, social, physical, and psychological impacts and aspects of giving care.
