CarePoint is a group formed by our organization for local individuals who are actively caregiving. The goal of this group is to provide a safe, supportive environment where caregivers can discuss their struggles, questions and even fears associated with caregiving, as well as offer encouragement, insight, and suggestions to others who are also currently caring for another. Participants of the group are encouraged to share their personal experience, strength and hope with others. Our hope is to provide a space for compassion, empathy, and support for caregivers in our community. To learn more about upcoming CarePoint meetings, click here
