These sessions range from 4-6 week traditional support groups to single pop-up events. Sessions are led by experts in a variety of practices and allow caregivers to face everyday life with self-awareness and a strengthened sense of support and community.
We are currently hosting CICOA’s CareAware Help and Hope for the Family Caregiver series – weekly at Joy’s House Broad Ripple each Tuesday from 6-7:30pm. This is a six-part video series and accompanying workbook to help meet the emotional, physical and logistical demands of caregiving. Click here for a preview of the materials.
