Our peer support groups are called Common Ground because they offer a way for caregivers to find strength in community. They are designed to be a safe space where family caregivers can talk, share wisdom, and support each other. Caregivers can also access resources, emotional support, and connections with others on their caregiving journey.
CarePartners offers three specialized Common Ground groups for caregivers’ needs:
Common Ground groups meet both in person and online.
The online General Caregiving meets every Tuesday at 10:00 A.M.
The online Grief Support meets every Tuesday at 2:00 P.M.
