Caring for Caregivers

Caring for Caregivers - Support Group

You never expected or planned to become a full time caregiver to your partner or parent, and this shift often brings feelings of loneliness, anger, or loss. The role reversal can be scary and hard to navigate, as you take on new responsibilities while trying to plan for the future. The Caring for Caregivers group is a supportive space for you, in your time of uncertainty. Through this group, you will gain insight and support from group members, build connections with others who understand, and have a welcoming space to process the challenges of caregiving.
Each week we will discuss a question that caregivers face to process their impact and develop ways to navigate the uncertainties of this season together.
Run by Anya Drew, LCSW – Anya is passionate about providing support to caregivers. Specializing in mental health and gerontology, Anya understands the unique challenges that come with caring for a loved one. She brings her wealth of experience accompanying those managing anxiety, grief and loss, depression, adjustment to chronic illness, familial dementia stressors, and family relationships.
Together we’ll explore the questions you face:
  • How do I plan for the future without knowing what it will look like?
  • How do I process ambiguous loss?
  • Who am I? What is my identity outside of being a caregiver?
  • How do I work through my own isolation, loneliness, guilt, anger, frustration?
  • How do I ask for help? Who can I ask for help? What is my community? 
  • How do I deal with my partners changing agency?

Join us to find support and community.
