Caregiver Support Group via Zoom 

Open to all caregivers of older adults/free

Meeting Tuesdays, 2:00-3:00pm

Join Julie Norstrand, a social worker and college professor, for this new Caregiver Support Group that will meet weekly via Zoom. Being a caregiver can be a very challenging time for many. You may feel stretched thin with the many demands you face, including work and family life. This can leave you feeling physically exhausted, isolated and alone. Julie has worked with many caregivers in support groups who describe these emotions. The burden born by caregivers has been even more challenging as the months of the pandemic continue! Julie has found these groups to provide tremendous practical and emotional support to the members. She ensures safe, non-judgmental settings whereby members can share and learn from one another and witnesses the strong bonds that develop as members gain each other's trust and friendship. In the beginning Julie sets the agenda with specific topics that guide the discussion, and then over time members take greater ownership of the discussion. The goal is to ensure that people feel heard and supported. If you are interested, please contact the Acton Council on Aging at 978-929-6652 or Julie Norstrand, PhD, MSW, and MSc, is an adjunct Professor at Regis College. She is the founder of Help My Aging Parents and is on the Board of the Newton COA.
