Hudson – The monthly “Caring for Caregivers” meets on the first Monday of each from 7-8:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 34 Felton St., in Wesley Hall on the second floor of the church. The church is handicap accessible.
The church has recognized a yearning in the community for a place to gather, intended for those in the position of being a caregiver and who need to be with others going through difficult times caring for their loved ones. Caregivers often feel alone, isolated and unique. The purpose of the group is to establish a safe, quiet setting for those who are feeling the weight that often accompanies caregiving. The group can’t solve problems or change a situation, but does offer support by encouraging each other to not feel weak, selfish, or unloving because of our thoughts. It offers a place to talk, vent, cry, even laugh, or just be still and listen.
share your concerns and feelings with those who know what you are going through. There is no judgment, only attentiveness and compassion. You may come to as few or as many of the meetings as you want. The meeting is open to anyone who is a caregiver. You may come just to listen.
First United Methodist Church is located just off the Hudson Rotary at 34 Felton St. More information is available by calling 978-562-2932 or visiting www.hudsonfumc.org.
