Catholic Charities Serving Portage and Stark Counties’ Caregiver Support Group provides support and education for not only caregivers who care for their loved ones living at home, but also for those who have had to place the ones they love in a nursing home. Our small group is led by both a social worker and a nurse and allows for easy interaction between caregivers. Participants are always encouraged to share their experiences and frustrations, which often results in a therapeutic experience for all involved. At some meetings, special speakers will be present to inform caregivers about services that are available within their community. Caregivers are welcome to bring their loved ones along so they may participate in activities with other participants at our Adult Day Services while the group is held.
Our Caregiver Support Group meets on the third Thursday of every month from 3:00-4:00 at 2308 Reno Drive in Louisville. Our social worker also leads a Caregiver Support Group on the last Thursday of each month at the Rodman Library 215 East Broadway St. Alliance, Ohio 44461. Please call (330) 875-7979 for details. We hope to see you there!
