I am interested in starting a long-term
caregivers support group at my small
synagogue in Mississippi, but I donít know
where to begin. We donít seem to have a lot
of resources here. Any suggestions? I know
the Jewish part, but I would love to have a
professional help me with the caregiver

See if you can reach an RN, administrator, social worker, someone through a professional organization that can help you get started. We started our group with having speakers from various hospitals, agencies, law, government, insurance to speak to our group. Finding speakers from your area who can help give your members answers to their questions submitted at initial meetings.

I would suggest speaking with your local Area Agency on Aging and Senior Center. The Area Agency on Aging may not be in your county. You may have to look for which one serves your county. They may be able to help with the support group or help promote it.
