In order to increase our community’s access to services that support caregivers and empower seniors and adults with medical or cognitive challenges, CESI operates the following community and caregiver programs.
CESI CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUPS
Support groups are moderated sessions where caregivers and partners can connect to share advice, discuss challenges, and learn of local resources to assist in the process of caring for adults with chronic medical or cognitive challenges, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Currently our caregiver support groups are on hold as we navigate how to best implement under current Covid-19 safety guidelines. For more information about these support groups, please reach out to staff noted below.
