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.
February 12: Barb Daley will join us again to explore ways to unite the family around caregiving
tasks, getting everyone engaged in those tasks, and helping relieve some
of the burden faced by the primary caregiver.
February 26: Time to catch up and share the journey. We’ll talk over how things
are going and allow time to vent on the stresses of the job.
March 12: Kayla Williamsen, Momentum Physical Therapy – will share the basics of BIG therapy, which uses large muscle motion
to increase mobility and range of motion in the elderly and those with
neurological conditions like Parkinson’s.
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.
