Caregiver Support Groups
If you're in the role of a caregiver, you may be feeling worn down, frustrated and tired? Join Nora Gravois, LMSW, for a support group of other caregivers and leave knowing you are not alone. Held via Zoom as well as in-person groups, please call the Wellness Center for a schedule of groups that would fit your situation.  No cost to you, so come and feel supported and encouraged by Nora and other caregivers.
Some of these support groups are currently being done via Zoom and in-person and do not require a previous appointment. There are other more tailored in-person groups available once you have met with the therapist.
