According to recent statistics, the vast majority of caregivers live close to their care recipient, but about 13 percent of caregivers live up to an hour away. If you fall into this 13 percent, then you’ll need to have a proper plan in place to ensure your senior loved one’s needs are met. So, let’s look at some of the major things you should address.

Grief Support Group

You are Not Alone!


The Second Saturday of each Month

10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

At Oviedo Presbyterian Church

The loss of someone you love is painful. Your emotions might seem to run on a schedule of their own. Some might feel like things will never get better.

While we often think of grief in terms of mourning the death of a loved one, it can be far more. Grief is a very human response to loss. It can be the loss of a job, health, pet, or anything else that is important to you.

While grief is intensely personal, you do not need to be alone.
