WE CARE FOR THE CARE GIVERS!
Caring for someone with a disability can be a rewarding experience. It can also be isolating, frustrating, frightening and stressful. Do you know of a safe place where you can express your feelings?
A person who has never had the experience of caring for another adult who depends on his or her help to meet the basic needs of life may not understand the problems you face every day. Have you met others who are also caring for a disabled adult?
When you are busy taking care of the needs of another, it can be difficult to find the time to read, talk on the telephone or watch TV. You may not hear about new ideas, services or products which could help you accomplish daily tasks more easily.
WE HAVE INFORMATION FOR YOU!
The support groups are a place to learn about the resources available to you. Members help each other by sharing ideas and practical solutions to problems that you face daily. Rehabilitation professionals from Magee Rehabilitation bring to the group expertise in supporting care givers and in accessing available community resources.
Contact the Magee Peer Coordinators at MRH_Peers@jefferson.edu or 215-587-3030 if you would like to receive more information about the Care Givers Support Groups at Magee.
