Caregiver Groups



Caregiver Discussion/Support Groups

Family caregivers, of older or disabled persons, assume responsibilities and  experience many changes in their lifestyles. They say they are frustrated in knowing how to solve the multitude of challenges facing them and don’t know where to turn for help. They need support. You need support!


Through the Onondaga County Department of Adult and Long Term Care, Office for
Aging, Caregiver Services provides on-going support through Caregiver Discussion Groups. There are four groups to choose from, all meet regularly with an aging specialist facilitator. Family caregivers gather to share their situations, define the problems they face, explore solutions, learn about community resources and make a commitment to change.

Group Participants learn from, and support, each other as they reach out and try
different strategies for providing care for their family members as well as themselves. The groups are trusting places where caregivers can express emotions and concerns and find validation and encouragement.

We are now offering our Caregiver Discussion/Support Group meetings virtually and in-person so that caregivers, or other loved ones, can interact, share, and learn from each other in a safe, supportive environment, either online or in a group setting.
