In-person programs, groups and events are currently being offered, but this could change at any time. Space is limited and reservations are required. Safety protocols will be followed, including requiring masks.
While support groups are not for everyone, they are a valuable resource for information and education, in addition to providing emotional support for peers.
Caregivers and seniors are encouraged to attend the appropriate groups. Several of the Council-sponsored groups are facilitated by GCCOA staff, and reminder cards are sent out when names/addresses are shared. Reservations are required, and space is limited.
Current GCCOA support groups:
~ Caregivers Support Groups - Individuals Caring for an Older Loved One
~ Parkinson's Individuals and Caregivers of those with Parkinson's Disease
~ Kinship Caregivers / Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
Additional in-person and online groups are offered through other organizations. If you are in search of another type of group, have questions or would like to make a reservation for a group, please contact us.
