The Elder Care Support Group is for individuals caring for, or anticipating caring for, an elderly relative, parent, or friend. It addresses topics such as:

  •    Determining what help is necessary and available resources
  •    Coping with feelings of anger, guilt, loss, and sadness
  •    Tips for getting elder to accept help they might need and not want
  •     Learning to take care of yourself
  •    Getting support and coping tips from others who share similar concerns

This support group is open to family members of FIT employees as we recognize elder care issues impact the entire family including siblings, spouses and partners. Please feel free to extend an invitation to those in your circle who might benefit from this program and just remember to let us know who and how many people you will be bringing.
