Caregiver Support Group
Location: Franciscan Health Dyer
24 Joliet Street
Dyer, IN 46311
Caring for a family member or friend is not easy, nor is it something most of us are prepared to do. Like most people, you may have questions about your family member or friend's illness or condition. If you have a job and are juggling several responsibilities or if your family member or friend requires a lot of assistance, you may need help providing care for them.
Many caregivers feel alone, helpless, confused, unprepared and unable to provide for the needs of their family member or friend. Learn about being a caregiver so that you feel supported and more comfortable with your role.
This support group encompasses Alzheimer's/dementia, cancer, stroke or other adult care responsibilities and is open to family and friends looking for compassion and information sharing. We embrace the premise of "Honor thy Father and thy Mother." We are affiliated with Alzheimer's Services of Northern Indiana who provide services such as 24 hour hotline, grants, and specialty workshops that are held periodically at the main Lake County library.
