“Caregivers United” Support for our Caregivers: May 28th

Sunday, May 28th; 2 to 4 pm, room B-113

Duluth First United Methodist Church is implementing an expanded Caregiver Ministry in our community. Many of members of our community neighbors have identified needing a place to talk with other Caregivers to share challenges, successes and to help us feel less alone in the struggle to care for their loved one. People caring for loved ones with debilitating or challenging diseases may feel they need emotional and practical support. We are bringing all caregivers together to share challenges, struggles, and resources and provide support to each other. All people who provide caregiving to someone have a place in this group. It may be caregiving for a spouse, parent, disabled or emotionally challenged child, sibling, friend, etc. We invite each caregiver to bring their valuable experiences and strengths that others may need as well as their challenges to this group. The Caregivers United Support Group can help you and needs your help to be successful.

As we age we find more of us care for someone in our family or community due to health challenges, aging, developmental issues or other special circumstances. In our church our Pastors are very proactive in reaching out to people who need extra support. This is not just the Pastors responsibility. St. Paul said we should bear each other’s burdens. We are called to care for each other every day.

Caregivers United can bring people together who are dealing with the same challenges to share with the group. We meet on Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 p.m. in room B-113, the Counseling/Stephen Ministry Center. The group shares resources and prayer for each other and bring issues to discuss that the Caregiver can’t discuss anywhere else. Caregivers United is a safe place where each member shares a responsibility for confidentiality and support. If you are interested in participating in this group please contact Rev. C. Kay Fuino by e-mail at ckfuino@duluthumc.org or call 770-476-3776, ext. 117.
