The role of a caregiver is often a complex one. Caregivers may find support in speaking with others in a similar role. Support groups for caregivers who are caring for someone who survived a stroke are listed by county.
Before joining a support group for the first time, we recommend that you reach out to the facilitator or location to check if any details have changed, or to be notified if an emergency arises. Additionally, some facilitators like to learn about new members ahead of your first meeting to prepare a welcome packet or notify the group of a new member, and in general to learn more about your caregiving role and journey.
If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please contact UPMC Senior Services at 866-430-8742 or UPMCSeniorServices@UPMC.edu. We will do our best to check for a support group that will meet your needs and is located close-by.
