Caregiver Telephone Support Groups
Participants in the District of Columbia Caregiversí Institute
can participate in a monthly telephone caregiver telephone support group.
While relaxing in the comfort of their home, caregivers are connected to other
caregivers by a conference call. The telephone support groups are
a time of laughter, sharing helpful tips, encouragement, and more
laughter. Participants register to join support group calls when
convenient, and the staff makes the arrangements with the conference call
operator. A professional moderator leads the calls and expert guests
provide helpful tips. The support group call lasts about one hour
and is structured to ensure that each participant has an opportunity to speak.
