Caregiver Support Group

What is this?

We know that being a caregiver is not always easy. This is why we have set up support groups.
The members of the group benefit from this privileged time to discuss, laugh, cry and vent their emotions with other people who are also going through similar situations.

If you are a caregiver and want to join a group, contact us!

Being a caregiver means:

  • Supporting elderly parents or a spouse
  • You live with an elderly parent or a spouse in your care
  • You regularly visit an elderly relative
  • You bring them comfort, warmth, technical and other support (errands, listening, phone calls, accompaniment, etc)
  • You care about their well-being, however, you may…

- Feel guilty for not being able to do more
- Feel alone with this responsibility
- No longer have time for your social life
- Feel tired-tired or angry

A good meal and great activities!

I live alone. When the volunteers from the volunteer group invite us for a good meal and nice activities (like musicians) it gives me joy in my heart. THANKS!


Thank you so much!

I want to thank you (the CAB) for throwing a Christmas party for us. I am a caregiver to my husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s. I was able to have a good time with him and play bingo. It changes our minds and makes us experience something other than the disease.


My little happiness of the week!

Thanks for coming to see me. It feels so good to talk and have a good coffee with someone. This is my little happiness of the week!
