At San Simeon on the Sound, we recognize that family caregivers need support too. While we provide care to your loved one, whether it is in long-term or short-term care, it is important to not neglect your individual needs. To help ease the strain on families, we provide several services in which caregivers are encouraged to participate.
Family Care Services
Caregiver Support Group
Our Caregiver Support Group is held weekly free of charge and hosted right here at San Simeon by the Sound. This group is open to the community and facilitated by a licensed social worker from the Family Service League.
- The program is designed to help people caring for a frail or elderly relative to cope with the inherent stress of their situation.
- Attendees will learn new coping skills for stress, gain a better understanding of their role and options, and receive help securing any assistance that may be available.
- The educational aspect of the program speaks directly to key aspects of the aging process— disease management, self-care, psychological changes, social stimulation, nutrition and many other factors that impact seniors and caregivers.
