Grandparents Group

Caring for a grandchild is a rewarding but stressful task. Finding others who understand your experiences can be a great relief. Many grandparents learn that support groups help in dealing with the emotions that accompany becoming a parent again.
Support groups offer a safe atmosphere in which to share information, concerns, feelings, solutions, and coping strategies with others going through similar experiences.

This support group for grandparents meets on the first Tuesday of each month from 10-11:30am in the Stephen Ministry Lounge at the church. All are welcome! For more information contact Norma (258-2016) or Vicki (223-5572). Come share your experiences and ask those difficult questions you may have.

Caregivers Support Group

Caregiving is one of the greatest challenges and opportunities most of us experience in a lifetime. Belonging to a support group can be a lifeline on this journey. Listening to others who are experiencing similar experiences, and sharing your feelings in a supportive, caring and confidential setting is healing and often reassuring. Members of support groups often become good friends and provide a support network. Meetings are held at Trinity.  The program is offered in conjunction with Alzheimer's Association. Share, learn and gain support from the experiences of other caregivers. Call facilitators,  Roberta French, (941) 484-7465 or Barb Winsmore, (941) 830-2100 for details. This group meets on the third Friday of each month.
