Important Update: Pause of Caregiver and Bereavement Support Groups
Hello dear community,
We want to keep you in the loop about an important change. Starting this month (August 2023), we're temporarily pausing our Caregiver and Bereavement Support Groups.
We've noticed that fewer people have been attending these groups lately. We believe that a strong, diverse group makes these sessions truly valuable, so we're taking this break to improve the experience.
We understand this might be disappointing. We're still here for you, and we'll keep you posted on when these groups will resume.
If you have any questions or thoughts, feel free to reach out to us at 209-966-3800.
Thank you for being part of our community. We're excited to come back, supporting more people than ever before!
Our community partner, Alliance for Community Transformations - Mariposa Family Resource Center, provides the following support groups:
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.
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.
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 occasionally attend addressing specific topics, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, etc.
JCF Home Health Social Worker, Stacey Lynch, leads the group.
Meetings are held every 4th Monday of the month, from 3pm-4:30pm at our John C. Fremont Boardroom.
The Bereavement Group offers support for those who have lost a loved one or friend. Bereavement issues are addressed in an open and caring atmosphere, with others who are experiencing feelings associated with loss.
Meetings are held every 3rd Monday of the month, from 3pm-4:30pm at our John C. Fremont Boardroom.
Both meetings are subject to change in the instance of a holiday falling on either the 3rd or 4th Monday. Updates for these changes will be announced as quickly as possible, both here and on our Facebook Page.
