Caregivers are often the unsung heroes in the lives of loved ones, but caregivers need care themselves. If you are a caregiver, please mark your calendar for the organizational relaunch meeting of Nassau County Council on Aging’s (NCCOA’s) Caregiver Support Group on Tuesday, April 20 from 9:30 am – 11:30 am via Zoom, https://bit.ly/3uyeWbw. Register for the meeting at https://conta.cc/3cXjRN1 (registration is not required, but encouraged). Future meeting dates and times will be based on participants’ schedules; in-person meetings will be offered at a later date.

Caregiving can be a challenge. In NCCOA’s Caregiver Support Group, meeting with peers who have common concerns provides a safe and welcoming environment – a place where you can be yourself, be encouraged, accepted and recognized. Participants benefit from useful information, support, wisdom and insight of others. The support group also provides a forum for problem solving and problem sharing; strategies to cope with stress, worries and fears; and an opportunity to combat isolation.

If you are one of America’s 40 million caregivers or are considering becoming a caregiver, please attend this organizational meeting. There is no charge to attend support group meetings, and NCCOA membership is not required. For more information, contact Emily Kunzelmann at 904-775-5472 or [email protected]
