  • Caregiving Support Group, 2-3 PM – This ongoing, drop-in group will provide a space for sharing resources and support related to caregiving, with a focus on self-care. While the topic of grief may come up, this is not a grief support group. People may attend regularly or as they are able. This is a hybrid group, so participation via Zoom is an option.
