Caregivers are compassionate people who are willing to devote time and resources to care for others in need. Every day over 65.7 million caregivers provide care to someone who is ill, disabled or aged. Caring for someone comes with a multitude of responsibilities, worries and frustrations. While caregiving can be a very rewarding experience, the experience can also be very stressful. Caregivers often feel isolated and may not get the support they need to successfully manage these challenging situations.
Southern Indiana Rehabilitation Hospital (SIRH) will be hosting a Caregiver Support Group on the second Tuesday of each month from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. The group will be facilitated by Greg Nordloh, Ph.D., and will take place at 3104 Blackiston Blvd., New Albany, Indiana. SIRH’s Caregiver Support Group will provide a place for caregivers to connect with others who are in similar situations. The group will have the opportunity to exchange information on caregiving problems and practical solutions, talk through common challenges and coping strategies, and share resources available within the community. The group is open to anyone interested in participating.
