Karyn came across this great article, Support Group Savvy, by Kristine Dwyer of Today’s Caregiver. The article covers those often asked question such as:
- How to find a support group?
- Why you should join a support group?
- What kinds of groups out there?
Here is a quote from the piece:
“According to Webster’s dictionary, the word “support” means to give courage or faith to; help, comfort; to carry the weight of; to give approval to, be in favor of or uphold. All of these words describe the framework around which support groups are built. They offer a place for caregivers and families to learn together, deal with feelings of frustration, sadness or isolation, and “link arms” with others that have a mutual understanding. Support groups can also validate a caregiver’s identity and give them permission to care for themselves throughout the caregiving journey.”
