“Our support groups give attendees the chance to meet with other caregivers in similar circumstances, learn effective problem-solving and coping skills, and receive emotional support from each other.  In addition, we invite guest speakers throughout the year to address current topics and, as always, open the meetings to the public to assist caregivers in supporting their loved ones,” added Ellen McNally, Director of InfoCare at SAGE.
