Support groups are a way to connect with others who are walking the journey of caregiving like you are. You get to SEE (if you use the video option) that you are not alone. You get to hear other’s challenges and successes, learn about helpful resources, know that your story matters and that you have been heard. Support groups are facilitated by a professional and are a safe place for you to express your concerns, frustrations, etc. and learn that others feel this way too. 8/15, 3rd Monday, 1–2:30pm (Midtown) In Person 8/16, 3rd Tuesday , 9–10:30am Virtual ON ZOOM 8/18, 3rd Thursday, 1:30–3pm Virtual ON ZOOM 8/22, 4th Monday, 11am–12:30pm Virtual ON ZOOM 8/23, 4th Tuesday , 9–10:30am (Southwest) In Person

“Regardless of what challenge you are facing right now, know that it has not come to stay. It has come to pass. During these times, do what you can with what you have, and ask for help if needed. Most importantly, never surrender. Put things in perspective. Take care of yourself. Find ways to replenish your energy, strengthen your faith, and fortify yourself from the inside out.” — Les Brown
