The roll of caregivers deserves greater awareness and recognition in all parts of our society. Caregivers need to understand that the role they are performing is valued and one they will have a better chance of sustaining if they reach out for support.
Without contributing to your own well-being, caregiving quickly becomes overwhelming and unsustainable. The moral support and advice are irreplaceable, supporting caregivers is often about making connections. Attending a caregiver's support group will give you the first steps in the support of your journey as a caregiver.
The group is continuing throughout the summer and you can join in at any time. For more information, call either facilitator John Frishholz at 250-285-3655 or Susan Wilson at 250-285-2994.
