Dealing with a loved one's illness and managing his or her care is a consuming, isolating process. It is impossible for anyone to be a caregiver 24 hours a day without outside support. Lifetime Care understands what caregivers need to continue to care for your loved one while keeping your personal and family lives strong and focused.

When you're dealing with a major loss or transition, it can affect your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. At the Center, our services will help you cope with the death of a loved one or deal with the stress of everyday life.

Caregiver Support

Caregivers Deserve Help, Too

Lifetime Care offers a variety of services and programs to aid people caring for or about someone who is seriously ill or chronically ill. These programs provide respite, strength, information, and a chance to let your guard down in a safe place with understanding people.

Support Groups for Adults

When you are dealing with loss or another painful transition, it helps to be around people who are enduring similar challenges.

Support Groups for Children

Children and teenagers face complex fears and feelings when coping with the illness or loss of a loved one. For young people, being part of a group of like-minded peers is especially important and helpful during the grieving process.

Lifetime Care offers Support Groups especially for children and teens, guided by trained, experienced and compassionate facilitators. These programs are open to anyone in the community who is dealing with a loved one’s illness or death, regardless of whether the patient received services from Lifetime Care.
