Caregiver support group formed

When someone is stricken with a long-term or fatal illness, that individual is understandably the focus of all attention.

The problem is the person who serves as caregiver, someone who is dealing with emotional, physical and sometimes financial issues, as they work to make another person’s life a little easier during a difficult time.

Those caregivers are the focus of a new support group being held at Willowood at Mustang. Willowood marketing director Dana Hall said the group meets the first Monday of every month. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m., with the meeting beginning at 6:30. Dinner will be served to anyone who RSVPs their attendance at the meeting, Hall said.

“Any caregiver, anyone who needs support is welcome,” Hall said. “Although we are geared to seniors here at Willowood, this group is not just focused on that group of people.”

Hall said she hoped people would attend and meet with others who are going through similar situations.

“Being a caregiver is a difficult thing and sometimes the best thing is to be able to talk to someone else about what you’re going through,” Hall said. “That’s what we’re hoping to do – to be there for people, let them talk, lend them support.”
