Brighton Hospice Presents
Care for the Caregiver
A Virtual Support Group for Our Patients’ Family Caregivers
We are pleased to announce that our Support Services team is now offering Care for the Caregiver, a virtual support group for our patients’ family members who are their caregivers.
Being a caregiver for a loved one on hospice can be difficult at any time, but is especially challenging in the time of COVID-19. Isolation and uncertainty can be overwhelming, making it even harder to make decisions that many have never even considered.
If you know of a patient’s family caregiver who is struggling with loneliness, guilt, confusion, and the myriad emotions that accompany the anticipatory grief of caring for a loved one on hospice, we invite you to refer them to our virtual support group.
We can offer support, education, and tips to navigate challenging situations complicated by COVID in a group setting. We will also take time to discuss how to celebrate life, the importance of self-care, and guidance on how to make these a priority when it feels impossible.
When: Every other Thursday from January 21 – April 1
How Caregivers Can Join: We will send out links every other week to the upcoming event. Here is the registration link for our next meeting on Thursday, February 18th:
We invite you to give this link to any of your patients’ caregivers who could use some extra support at this time. You can also have them email CaregiverSupport@BrightonHospice.com for more information or for registration assistance.
