Caregiver Support Group
If you provide care to an older adult, don’t forget to also take care of yourself. Caregivers of older adults are at an increased risk for health problems and depression, and they have 46% more physician visits than their peers.
Prairie View’s Caregiver Services offer counseling, consultation, support groups, training and encouragement to those in Harvey, Sedgwick, and Butler counties who are giving primary care to older adults. Individual caregiver counseling is available for no charge to Harvey County and Sedgwick County residents. In-person, phone or video-conferencing options are available to fit your schedule. Call 800-992-6292 for more information.
