Our Caregiver Support Group is free to family and friends of Windhorse Elder Care clients.
Facilitated by Kathy Emery, MA, LPC and Lou Stenger, M.A., M.S.
How might supporting our loved one through (often challenging) mental, physical, and emotional changes impact our relationships? How might this process influence the roles we play in one another’s lives? It is an understatement to say that witnessing the changes in our loved ones that occur with aging can be painful, sad, distressing, and anxiety provoking. – By Avery McKenzie, MA, SPT, LPCC
Please join with us in supporting one another on this journey of caring for our loved ones. Our Caregiver Support Group can offer you the opportunity to meet other caregivers and share your wisdom and challenges.
How the Caregiver Support Group is Structured
The facilitators welcome all participants and introductions are made to newcomers. Each participant then checks in about how they are doing and facilitators help each person identify their most pressing need or describe the highlight of their week. This is all held in confidence by group members.
This meeting is held in an atmosphere of acceptance, kindness and nonjudgement.

- Current COVID challenges
