You've Got a Friend
Support Groups, Open to Anyone
Meeting people who are going through the same situation, sharing experiences, and coping techniques, does make one feel less alone. You do have a friend.
Our Social Worker Services offers: a Care Givers Group, a Bereavement Group, and a HIV Support Group. One does not have to be a patient to attend these meetings, anyone may attend.
The Care Givers Support Group is here to help people who are the care giver of an elderly, ill, or compromised loved one. Attendees learn from one another by sharing information, experiences, and coping techniques.
Guest speakers occationally attend addressing specific topics, such as alzheimers, parkinsons disease, etc. Juli Johnson, Social Worker I, leads the group.
Meetings are held the second and forth Tuesday of the month, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at the JCF Home Health and Hospice office, located at 5108 Highway 140, Mariposa.
