About this Event

Social distancing can contribute to feelings of isolation and loneliness. This is true for family caregivers and the loved ones they support. The Virtual Caregiver Support Group offers a safe place for caregivers to share experiences, advice and practical strategies for managing caregiver responsibilities. All caregivers welcome, including dementia caregivers.

The support group takes place on the third Tuesday of each month from 1-2 PM, Montana time. Participate online or by phone at no cost, using Zoom. Space is limited; sign up for one or more sessions by Wednesday the week before. Registration is required and is first come, first served. A email confirmation with the Zoom meeting id, password and instructions will be sent to registered participants several days prior to the event.

The group is facilitated by MAS staff Lois Mandelko-Steinberg. For more information or assistance registering contact Missoula Aging Services at (406) 728-7682, or email help@missoulaagingservices.org. You can also visit the MAS website: https://missoulaagingservices.org/.
