Caregiver Support Group

Being a caregiver for a loved one can be very challenging. Having support from people who understand what you are going through can make a world of a difference. If you care for or have a friend, neighbor, co-worker or family member with Dementia, please join us for our confidential and faith-based Caregiver Support Group facilitated by Freedom Home Care staff and Kim Alinder from Birchwood Cottages. The support group meets from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on the First Thursday of each month at Crossview Covenant Church at 2000 Howard Drive West, North Mankato, MN (unless it conflicts with a holiday). We learn from each other as well as having a professional guide you through the process of caregiving. For more information contact Freedom Home Care at 507-387-HOME (4663).

Caregiver Support Group is affiliated with the Alzheimer's Association and the support group facilitators are trained by the Alzheimer's Association.
