Our Parish Nurse, Anne Baer Clark, coordinates and facilitates three ongoing support groups.
Caregiver Support Group
This is an open group where caregivers of family and friends can come together to share, support, and encourage one another through the often long and lonely job of providing ongoing care in the home or health care facility. We meet on the first and third Monday of each month from 1 – 2:30 p.m. in the Greeley Library. Just show up!
Parkinson’s Interest Group
This group, recently started, is for people affected by Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 2 – 3:30 p.m. in the Greeley Library.
Conversations on Aging
This is a group for those navigating the later years of life. We come together to discuss, support, and educate one another about the journey of aging. This group has gone through several changes since its inception, and provides an active, ongoing conversation that group members direct. It is held on the last Wednesday of the month from 1 – 2:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room.
Other groups meet regularly:
Men’s Support Group
This is a group of men who are committed to exploring and sharing their lives in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. The group meets weekly, representing a significant commitment of members’ time. Because of the intimate nature of the discussions, the group size is limited and anyone interested in learning more should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. The men’s group has a long history in the church and has met continuously since the seventies.
