Whether you are caring for your parents, a spouse, or another loved one, meeting and talking with other caregivers can be an opportunity to learn, connect, get ideas and be understood.
When choosing a caregiver support group, you may want to visit more than one to make sure the group is the right fit. Most groups are facilitated by a social worker or other professional who specializes in caregiving.
There are caregiver support groups located throughout the six counties that that Area Agency on Aging 1-B serves (Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw.) Please call before attending to confirm that the group is still active and accepting members.
