Caregiver Support Group held by conference call

The regular Caregiver Support Group meetings held monthly at Veterans Memorial Hospital in Waukon have been canceled due to the COVID-19 virus. However, this support group is now being held through conference calls. Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging (NEI3A) is offering weekly Caregiver Support Group conference calls every Monday from 10-11 a.m.

To join a call, just dial 1-800-264-8432. Then enter the meeting’s participant code 961847#.  You will then be connected to the support group conference call, joining other caregivers.

When a person loses some of their abilities to care for themselves the burden of care is often assumed by the spouse, a child (or children), or sometimes friends and neighbors. While everyone who becomes a caregiver handles the added responsibility differently, there is no question that there is a very real strain associated with care giving. Contact Kelly Kuennen at 1-800-779-8707 with any questions.
