Support Group For Family Caregivers Meets Twice Monthly

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The Caregiver Support Group at The Health Center at Standifer Place is a program designed especially for individuals providing care for adult loved ones. The Caregiver Support Group will meet every first and third Friday of every month in 2014 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.  

The support group will equip caregivers with practical information on resources and services that are available to assist them, as well as the opportunity to interact with other caregivers who are in similar situations. Caregivers seldom take the time or have the place to talk about their own difficulties and needs; this group provides the environment for them to do so, officials said.

Call Christin McWhorter, National Family Caregiver Support Program coordinator, at 424-4288 or mail cmcwhorter@sedev.org for more information. The support group will meet at The Health Center at Standifer Place, at 2626 Walker Road.

The Caregiver Support Group is provided by the Southeast Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability, a program of the Southeast Tennessee Development District, and The Health Center at Standifer Place. For more information, visit www.setaaad.org or call 424-4288.
