PARISH SUPPORT GROUP FOR CAREGIVERS

An Invitation to Join Us


First Meeting: August 8 at 7:00pm
Holy Disciples Parish Office

Aware of the growing number of caregivers within our parishes, Holy Disciples and Our Lady of Good Counsel sponsored a two-day workshop last spring for people whose life circumstances have made them responsible for loved ones who are no longer able to care for themselves.  Many of the workshop participants indicated a strong interest in becoming a part of a support group consisting of people who, like themselves, do not always feel sufficiently prepared for the role of caregiver.

Holy Disciples parishioners Jo Galluci PhD and George Risse MA have agreed to organize and facilitate this new support group. Participants will be blessed by the many years of training and experience in counseling psychology these two facilitators bring to the group. They are looking forward to the role they can have in providing support to the caregivers of our community.

The initial meeting for this new Caregiver Support Group is scheduled for the evening of August 8 at 7:00pm in the Parish Office building. The purpose of the group is to provide support to people who are on the forefront of taking care of loved ones. At this first meeting, the two facilitators want to gather information and input from the participants as to how the group can best respond to the needs and concerns experienced by the caregivers in our two parishes.  If you are interested in the group but will be unable to attend this first meeting, you are encouraged to leave a message with the Parish Office and either Jo or George will contact you.
