A weekly gathering for all active caregivers in our community. This is Santa Fe’s only group that meets weekly. Members share the challenges and difficulties of caregiving, but also share in providing ideas and solutions with each other. We also celebrate when success is achieved with a particular challenge or problem. The group is based in a community where that is about not only getting help and support, but giving it to others.
