Holidays are Coming...

This group will focus on the upcoming holidays that you may be facing alone, with family members or with friends. The holidays can be hard because the expectations can be high, especially if the family thinks you are going to prepare the Thanksgiving/Christmas fest even if you feel you’re not up to it!

Growing Older in Niles/Geared toward the Loved Ones Involved in Senior’s Lives
This is a part two type offering of the above but geared towards educating daughters, sons, friends, & partners who are involved in the life of a senior. Often times family members do not know what is available for their loved one until a crisis hits such as a fall, a hospitalization, or until a medical professional is asking direct questions. The above topics will be addressed again so that a family knows what is available and what should be arranged before there is a problem.
Thursdays, Feb 27 - Apr 3 • 6:00-8:00pm • NO COST
Circle is Getting Smaller
Losing a loved one is hard enough but losing the members of your circle of friends is just as hard. The group can focus on whoever a person defines as a "friend" who can include spouses, children, friends of childhood, long time neighbors, etc.
Mondays, beginning Jan 9 (Ongoing Support Group) • 3:00-4:00pm • NO COST
