Caregiver Klatch - Living With Loss Edition
Coed caregiver discussion groups focused on learning, sharing and exploring the ways we think, feel and act as we navigate our grief.
Hear a participant sharing what he assumed the Caregiver Klatch would be like versus his actual experience.
Learn how to navigate the challenges of grief. This program is most popular with those who have lost their loved one to catastrophic illness, but we also welcome those who haven't lost a loved one. You may be anticipating a loss, or you may need help grieving the loss of the life you had prior to becoming a caregiver.
The Klatch concept is not your ordinary education or support group. A welcoming environment provides the backdrop for skilled peer facilitators to guide guests through a structured dialogue around caregiver issues, decided upon by the group. Offering nourishment, drinks, and comradery, Klatch participants are sure to gain validation, helpful advice, a sense of belonging, and restoration" - Alicia Cain, Virginia Piper Cancer Center
Anyone, 18 & older, who's cared for a loved one with a catastrophic illness.
Fourth Wednesday of the month (except December). 6:00 pm - 7:30pm
All Caregiver Klatch programming will be offered virtually until further notice. Registrants will receive instructions to connect.
