Caregiver Support Group

Connecting with other caregivers in caregiver support group meetings is an excellent way to acquire information, ideas and tips for caregiving. In addition, support group participants feel affirmed, renewed and re-energized after sharing their stories and hearing the stories of their fellow caregivers.

Holy Cross supports all and any caregivers through the support group meetings that are held each month. During the meetings, caregivers are given opportunities to share their stories, ask questions and feel affirmed for all they are doing in their journeys as a caregiver.

  • 2nd Wednesday of the month at 2:30pm in classrooms 1-2 at Mountain Vista Medical Center which is located on the southeast corner of Crismon Road and Southern Avenue in Mesa. Please call 1-877-924-9355 to pre-register.
  • 4th Thursday of the month at 1:30pm in classroom J at Holy Cross

The world may feel like a deep, dark cave void of life. Fortunately, as time passes, little rays of light and hope begin to penetrate the darkness and the world is no longer such a forbidding place.

Caregivers are the Eyes, Ears & Voices of their Care Receivers

Caregivers become the eyes, ears and voices for their care receivers as they voice their loved ones’ concerns and make sure that the medical providers understand them. Caregivers also lend their eyes and ears to the medical providers. Because caregivers know more about their loved ones’ situation than the medical providers, it is important that they continuously observe and communicate changes in the care receiver’s physical, mental, behavioral and emotional health.
