Informal Support Groups

Support groups can be a rich resource in your caregiving journey. They provide a platform where you can share your feelings and experiences with a community of fellow caregivers, hear from them about different options as well as picking up caregiving tips and skills. Some groups are public, whereas some require you to write in to the administrator. Note that this is not an exhaustive list. Take time to decide which group will support you the best.
