Caregiver Support Group
Caring for those who care for others
Join other caregivers who share the same task to build a local support system.
The group is multipurpose – provide information for taking care of
yourself and your loved one along with sharing advice and understanding
with other caregivers. Meetings will open with short informational presentations
on a variety of caregiver topics followed by personal experience sharing.
Some sessions will offer guest presenters with topics such as nutrition,
exercise, home safety, medical needs, how to talk with someone with dementia,
taking care of the caregiver, and social and family circle for support.
Meetings held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Legacy
Living and Rehabilitation Center at 1000 S. Douglas Avenue in Gillette,
Wyoming at 6:30 pm; light refreshments provided.

may want to consider, should the worst happen.

doctor. How to ask questions, be better informed, and use your short consultation
