Those who have been charged with caring for a family member — be it a child, parent, sibling with disabilities, or spouse — understand how taxing caregiving throughout a day can be.
Caregivers need support, both emotionally and physically, to prevent burnout and maintain their own well-being, says Duet: Partners In Health & Aging. The nonprofit organization, which was originally founded in 1981 and renamed in 2009, promotes health and well-being through its vitally needed, free-of-charge services to homebound adults, family caregivers, faith communities, and grandfamilies.
Duet’s diversified family caregiver support groups — including general and specialty such as Spanish language, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, LGBTQ+, caring for parents, and grief —meet monthly both virtually and in-person and offer a valuable resource for caregivers to find emotional support, helpful resources, tips, and guidance to navigate the challenging journey of caregiving.
