Frankie Aggers, a veteran social worker and group facilitator with WISE and Healthy Aging, offers a glimpse into how helpful a support group can be for caregivers. There are so many decisions caregivers must make on a daily basis and looking to friends and family for advice and emotional reassurance isn't always effective. In a support group with other caregivers, Algerine Correia knows she has a place to go where all her concerns are addressed and all her questions are answered. In "A Survival Kit for Caregivers", Mr. Aggers itemizes essential tools that every caregiver should have and suggests that all caregivers join a support group to get the help they need.
