Caregiver Support Groups

announcement gifAnnouncing: Caregiver Support Groups are beginning this month
Register for June 16 here



Retired Physical Therapist Joy Twelves will present "Safety Equipment - Let's Prevent Falls." This detailed and practical session will review:
  • Safety in the bathroom - toileting, bathing and showering
  • General safety tips - from light switches to scatter rugs
Joy's practical advice will help the care recipient safely maximize his or her mobility. A must for caregivers who are committed to Preventing Falls!

Are you a “caregiver”? Many people are, but don’t realize it.

Do you provide help to a family member, a loved one or a friend? To someone who is older, younger, or disabled and who needs help with the usual activities of living safely?


Support groups can provide opportunities to share experiences with other caregivers. You may get education and information on resources that you and your care receiver may use. It's an opportunity, if you choose, to explore your feelings with other caregivers. You may join for one group, or multiple groups. It's up to you.

The Village Common Caregiver Support Circles will be virtual, online (ZOOM) and open to everyone-not just members!  THAT MEANS YOU! The groups will be facilitated by retired professional Village  Common volunteers. 
All you need is an email address and digital equipment (computer, tablet or smartphone) with access to zoom (a free App that we can help you access).

If you want to join, but don’t have digital equipment, the Common can provide a limited number of iPads and training by volunteers.  Call 401-441-5240 for more information.



Look for more details in emails coming soon! Please feel free to register, and to try one out. There are multiple on-line start-up groups scheduled in May and June. These consist of three groups (A, B, and C) that cover Caregiver Support, and one group that will cover Home Safety for Caregivers.
Remember, you can ask for digital help from one of our personal trainers with an iPad, a computer or a smartphone.
