The Caregiver Support Group at the Venice United Church of Christ is a confidential meeting of people who have become caregivers - often a new,uncertain, and life changing role.  The goal of the group is for caregivers to gain the best support available for themselves and their families, and prepare for the future.  

 

While attending a group is not the solution for all, it can be a vital part of maintaining the health and well-being of both caregiver and patient.  Caregivers must maintain their own health and well-being so they can help their loved one.  Research has shown that attending a support group can reduce caregiver stress – a very desirable benefit. 

Many people don’t attend a group because they think they are depressing or someplace you go if you can’t cope. But the opposite is true! You will meet with other caregivers who are going through similar situations.  Groups help you cope. Studies have found that the least depressed caregivers attend a group. And group members themselves have often found that while the group is a good place to cry if you need to, it is also is a great place to laugh.  

 

Our group meets monthly – the scheduled dates are in the weekly Connect and monthly Tidings.  All caregivers are welcome.

Holy Communion

All God's people are invited and welcome at our table.

We come as insiders and outsiders gathered as one community.

We come as families and strangers, neighbors and welcome guests.


We are young and old, weak and strong, stranger and friend.

We are wise and naive, at peace, and filled with trepidation.

We are with dear ones and with those living lives of isolation.

We are married, single, gay, straight and widowed.


No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey,

you are welcome here at Christ's table.


We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month.
