Caregiver Support

  • The happiness and health of both participant and caregiver are important to us. Caregivers seeking assistance have the opportunity to participate in group support sessions and one-on-one consultations with experienced staff members.

Caregiver support is equally as important to us as the care we provide our participants. No one can be a good caregiver if he or she is tired, stressed, and feeling overwhelmed. Each month, we provide a variety of group support opportunities. All of these support groups are open to the community for both caregivers who use Page Robbins care and those who do not.

Our Social Worker, Nurse, and Executive Director will share their expertise with you on an individual basis to help you through this process. You may call (901-854-1200) or drop by to make an appointment for a time of conversation – just for you.

Additionally, in order to assist our participants and their families with basic hygiene routines, we offer bathing, home-style hair care, and shaving for a reasonable fee.

Support Groups

Unless noted otherwise, all meetings are held at Page Robbins Adult Day Center at 1961 South Houston Levee Road in Collierville and are open to the community, so even if your loved one is not a participant at Page Robbins, we welcome you to join us!
