Virtual Family Caregiver Support Groups & Webinars
By DebraMcDonagh / August 2, 2021

We all need help from time to time, especially when caring for a loved one. It is easy to feel like you SHOULD help just because you are family. If you feel unhappy, tired, or stressed over it, guilt may set in. Talking in a group with others who share the same or similar feelings can help relieve the pressure you may put on yourself.

Due to COVID, we are still living in uncertain times. Even though in-person events are cautiously resuming, you may still feel more comfortable attending virtual support groups. CaregivingMetroWest.org has found a few family caregiver support groups that you can attend virtually! DOWNLOAD FLYER
