CAREGIVER 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.
Conversation, Education and Support
- First Wednesday of every month! 11am-12:00pm
- With the increasing age of our population, more and more people are finding themselves providing care for those in need.
- 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.
- JOIN US!!!! Connect with others as we talk about monthly caregiving topics and the ups and downs of at home caregiving. Attend once or as often as you’d like.
- IN-PERSON Meetings are back: located at Speare Memorial Hospital Conference room at 103 Boulder Point Drive (across the parking lot from PBCH).

BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT COPING WITH LOSS
During your loved one’s illness, you may be too busy with care-giving to feel the full weight of your loss. After your loved one passes away, your grief may come suddenly or happen over time, and the depth of your feelings may surprise you. It’s important that you get care for your emotional and spiritual health; understanding grief and the feelings attached to it are important steps in healing.
Lean on us when you need help coping with your loss
Our bereavement counselors are here for those left behind. The bereavement team provides one-on-one counseling, grief education, workshops and other resources.

- Because of COVID19 restrictions on social gatherings, many persons are living with unresolved and unprocessed issues of grief and loss due to abbreviated funeral or memorial services.
- We hope this will be a first step toward helping people come to terms with that bereavement and other issues of loss that have been neglected during the height of the pandemic.
- We will be making use of GRIEF ONE DAY AT A TIME by Alan D. Wolfelt, PhD. Dr. Wolfelt is a noted grief educator, having written several books about healing personal grief.
