SUPPORT GROUPS

VINE hosts a variety of support groups and provides a place for people to gather and talk about their struggles. Perhaps the biggest advantage of support groups is helping participants realize that they are not alone; visiting with others facing similar challenges can be a source of strength and comfort. Support groups are facilitated by a VINE social worker or another experienced professional with understanding of bereavement after the death of a loved one, caregiving, or memory loss.

Caregiving can be difficult and isolating. This group can provide insight and encouragement from others facing similar challenges.
