Group for Caregivers (en anglais)
AMI-Québec will start a Group for Caregivers at the beginning of May, but you need to come in for an interview first. A 10 session program for family caregivers. This group will explore your own challenges as a carer, and you will benefit from others' experiences.
This group is neither a support group nor an education group. While it is expected to offer a therapeutic experience, it is not a therapy group either.
A group setting can be viewed as a social microcosm that offers opportunities for interpersonal learning and growth. As participants share their experiences and learn from each other, they can gain new insights. Group work can help explore the impact participants’ behaviours have on others and share their observations with other members, thus creating a mutually beneficial environment. It may alleviate some of the isolation and other difficulties that are often associated with caregiving.
