Being a caregiver requires patience, understanding and creativity. Knowledge is essential for being proactive and anticipating hazards or issues before they arise. One of the best ways to learn effective caregiving techniques is to attend a support group. You’ll be surprised at the tips you can pick up, the friendships you’ll make and the emotional support you’ll receive at these groups.
The McGuire Group facilities offer four different support groups:
A support group for Wives of Those with Memory Loss meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 3 pm at Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville.
A support group for the Daughters of Those with Memory Loss meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 5 pm at Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville.
A Caregiver’s Support Group for those with loved ones in a nursing home meets on the first Monday of the month at 11 am at Harris Hill Nursing Facility in Williamsville.
A Bereavement Support Group for those who’ve experienced a loss meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 5 pm at Seneca Health Care Center in West Seneca.
