Description:  What often begins as loving, compassionate care can begin to feel like an isolating, stressful, and never-ending burden. It is so easy for loneliness, anger, and resentment to creep into the heart of the caregiver — toward the person being cared for as well as other family members and friends who don't or can’t pitch in. In addition to this, guilt and shame for not feeling loving all the time often gets added to the emotional mix.  This is a common path for many caregivers.  This group is for caregivers responsible for any age person, no matter the relationship.  In this group you will learn tips, meet other caregivers, and receive hope and encouragement.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…when people are easy to get along with!  But, what about those family members and friends who can be a little prickly, quirky, or difficult.  For many different reasons, people can go through the holidays simply not acting their best. So, how do we choose to behave and relate in response? Luckily the scriptures give many insights into how to care for others, even when extra grace is required. Merry Christmas!
