Support Groups for Caregivers

Caregivers’ Connections weekly telephone support groups help to reduce the feelings of isolation and stress that caregivers may experience. Caregivers help one another in a supportive, positive, and nurturing environment. Group members relate their personal experiences, provide suggestions and advice for others, ask questions, and get answers. Support groups meet for one hour and generally run for several weeks.

There is a $10 registration fee to join Caregivers’ Connections and a $15 fee for each support group series. Scholarships are available. For more information, please call DOROT at (212) 769–2850 or (877) 819–9147.
