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.
