Caregiver Support Group

Please join us for a Caregiver Support Group facilitated by Barb Ronca and Sister Ann Helene Koenig.  The session will be an opportunity to share stories and information about the role of a caregiver and the challenges of having a loved on in a nursing facility.

Although you may not be caring for your loved one at home any longer, the caregiving does not stop. Our sessions facilitate honest discussions and sharing.

The group will meet on the first Monday of the month from 11:00am- 12:00pm at Harris Hill Nursing Facility, 2699 Wehrle Drive, Williamsville, NY 14221

Please contact Barb Johnson, Journeys Director at (716) 632-3700 or bjohnson@mcguiregroup.com, with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you.
