The virtual Caregiver Support Group offers a forum for those in a caregiving role to loved ones with neurological conditions to connect with each other and share concerns, experiences and resources.
Group meetings occur every third Thursday of the month from 4 to 5 p.m. Topics of discussion may include, but aren’t limited to:
- Adjusting to a diagnosis or change of function.
- Learning coping skills.
- Normalizing current feelings.
- Discussing challenges related to being a caregiver.
- Learning additional resources to cope with stress.
What to Expect
The meetings are facilitated by a Cleveland Clinic psychologist. Caregivers are able to participate with or without their loved ones. Regular attendance is encouraged but not required.
Group members (caregivers) will join the virtual Caregiver Support Group via a link to Zoom within their MyChart account. Participants can be anywhere in the state of Ohio.
The Caregiver Support Group is open to caregivers living in Ohio.
Before joining the group, a caregiver must be seen for an initial evaluation with a member of Cleveland Clinic’s behavioral medicine team. This evaluation can happen virtually or in-person.
Cost & Insurance
Both the initial evaluation and the group meetings are billed to insurance. There’s currently no charge for no-shows.
