The “Side by Side” Caregiver and Family Support Group is a community outreach initiative of the Mt. Lehman United Church, and offers support to the general public of unpaid caregivers of spouses, elders, children, blended and extended families, as well as friends and neighbours of people with significant health needs. We will meet the last Saturday of every month from September, 2018 to November, 2018, at 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We will also offer coffee/tea and muffin and a lunch of soup and buns, as well as an interactive educational presentation on identified caregiver issues, and a safe place for caregivers to exchange information and meet others with similar experiences. We would like any caregivers to register their interest as space is limited. Please contact Paddy at 604-856-8113 or email… email@example.com…to register, or go to the website at www.sidebysidecare.org to get further information.
Our next session is November 24th, 2018

Our November meeting is scheduled for November 24th, with coffee/muffins set for 9:30 a.m., an informal discussion at 10 a.m. and our guest speaker to start at 10:30 a.m. We are still meeting at the ANAVET’s HALL.
Rosemary Fromson will add her thoughts on our discussion and will also talk about ‘where do we go as caregivers’ from here. Please bring your questions for Rosemary on your individual issues.
