Caregiver Support

1178513 76569471

Caregiving is hard, and caregivers of chronically ill people often feel stress. You are "on call" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you're caring for someone with mental problems like Alzheimer's disease, it can be especially difficult.

You can’t do it alone! The longer you are a caregiver, the more isolated you can become. But this lack of social interaction will lead to poorer health for you. We all need someone to talk to. Support groups can help reduce the feeling that you’re all alone and help you learn coping skills from others who are in similar situations.

The Congregational Life Team offers a monthly support group. Please contact the Church Office for more information (208-375-0392).
