Our program offers support to caregivers so you can maintain your own resilience, health and well-being.
Stepping into a caregiving role is often a life-altering experience. Caregiving takes courage, patience, and endurance. It can be a challenging and lonely role.
Fortunately, you are not alone. North Shore Community Resources’ Caregiver Support Program, is here to help you gain knowledge, strength, and inspiration that allows you to connect with other caregivers. Our Caregiver Support Program hosts support groups and workshops, one-on-one consultations in person, by telephone and online as well as referrals to health care and community services. We offer stress management strategies and relaxation techniques, informative blog posts, a resource library, and a bi-monthly newsletter.
