Caregiver Support Groups

Heights and Hills is proud to offer a variety of support groups for those caring for a loved one or friend who is age 60 or older.

These groups can help a family caregiver:

  • Know you are not alone.
  • Have a safe space to express fears and frustrations.
  • Share valuable information with other caregivers.
  • Gain emotional support from a group of peers.
  • Be guided by a social worker with expertise in dealing with the many and unique challenges of being a caregiver.
