Caregiver’s Support Group
Commissioner Carmen Rodriguez is proud to announce Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services (ADRC) is starting a Caregiver’s Support Group.
The goal of this group is to help give you advice, tips, counseling, education, coaching, and referrals to resources and to help you navigate community services. We will communicate with you the way that is most convenient for you; phone, email, appointment or by mail.
Very few of us are prepared to become caregivers. Let us lessen your stress out of caregiving. Whether you are just beginning your journey as a caregiver or have been on the path of a while. There is no need to go through it alone! For more information please contact Erin Small- Gabriel at 856-374-2582 or visit the event calendar.
