The “Side by Side” Caregiver and Family Support Group is a community outreach initiative of the Mt. Lehman United Church, and offers support to the general public of unpaid caregivers of spouses, elders, children, blended and extended families, as well as friends and neighbours of people with significant health needs. We were meeting the last Saturday of every month for the last 3 1/2 years, at 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We offered coffee/tea and muffin and a lunch of soup and buns, as well as an interactive educational presentation on identified caregiver issues, and a safe place for caregivers to exchange information and meet others with similar experiences.
We have had our last regular session for “Side by Side”, but please keep checking back as we may have one or two special sessions in 2019.
