Rosemary Monahan, CMF
Educator, Professional Facilitator, Leader, Executive Coach, Advocate, Care Giver

Taking care of a loved one with dementia or other long-term illness is difficult. Caregivers often feel alone,  and struggle with their roles and responsibilities, afraid to ask for help. They continue to provide care, often to the point of resentment and exhaustion, never recognizing they need support themselves. Many don't even know support is available.  Caregiver support groups provide education, offer emotional support and help build caregiver confidence  This presentation will describe what to look for in a support group, offer stories from actual caregivers, and is presented by an experienced support group leader and caregiver who took care of her own Mom with dementia for 10+ years.
