We recently ran a social media-based campaign to raise awareness about caregiver isolation and stress. The campaign was called #iCareforCaregivers. Check out the official #iCareforCaregivers webpage at pagerobbins.org/icareforcaregivers. You’ll find more information on the campaign as well as blog posts and stories related to caring for caregivers. Be sure to check it out and join us for a support group!
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!
