SUPPORT TO SUSTAIN YOU
Some feel privileged to serve a loved one at their most vulnerable time. Many also feel afraid, tired and overwhelmed at times. And most people feel it all in one day. It’s okay; these feelings are normal. The important thing is to have the tools and resources you need to cope with the natural ebb and flow of your emotions.
Drop in Caregiver Support Group
- Third Wednesday of every month @ Plymouth Regional Senior Center 12:30-2pm
- With the increasing age of our population, more and more people are finding themselves providing care for those in need.
- Caregivers residing with the person being cared for spend on average of 40-plus hours weekly on caregiving tasks. The average estimated duration of care is four years.
- Many caregivers feel ill-prepared for their role and have little or no support. This leads to high levels of stress, frustration, anger, guilt, and feeling overwhelmed, drained of energy, and helpless. Increased worry, uncertainty, and loss of attention to their own needs leave 27% of caregivers exhausted at the end of their day.
- We hope you will join us to express the challenges you face and to gather with others experiencing similar circumstances.
