Many people are juggling jobs, families and their parents’ or other
family members’ increasing medical needs, frequent emergencies and
ongoing need for care. How do we cope with the needs of our loved ones
and find some balance in our own lives? What do we need to learn as we
take on this task? How do we find information and community? If you
find yourself in this position, you are welcome at this group for
discussion and support.
