Advocates' telephone support group for caregivers beginning new session on April 28
By Douglas Flynn / April 17, 2015
Advocates will be offering its CareGiver Telephone Connections, a support group by phone for caregivers of older adults, again later this month.

The free, 10-week program will open its next session on April 28 and meetings will be held on Tuesdays from 7:30-8:45 p.m. The support group meetings are all conducted by telephone in a conference call setting, allowing caregivers who might not otherwise be able to participate in a support group to get some needed support and communication with fellow caregivers from the comfort of their own home.

The program allows caregivers to connect with others who are experiences the ups and downs of caregiving, decrease their stress, improve their own health and create a system to solve problems as they arise.

Advocates is a Framingham-based human services organization that offers services for family caregivers among its programs.

Registration is required to participate in the CareGiver Telephone Connections program. To sign up or to learn more about the program, contact Carmen Camacho, MA, LSW at 774-279-7266 or ccamach@advocates.org.
