JFS Caregiver Group

Are you caring for a loved one, or responsible for their care? We know the challenges and stresses that can impact the caregiver. If you are interested in receiving support in a group setting with professional facilitation, let us know as we develop groups based on demand. Of course individual therapy is always available with our Licensed Clinical Social Worker. 

Caregiver Group sessions are designed to give group members time to share their challenges in a supportive and solution-focused group, facilitated by JFS mental health counselor, Deborah Wood, LCSW.

Prior to participation in the group, Deborah meets with each member to learn about their unique issues and provide individual support in addition to the group when needed.

There is no fee for caregivers who have Medicare, and other insurance may be billed; a sliding scale is available for those without insurance coverage.

Call Debby at (828)253-2900 ext. 13 or email for information or to enroll in the Caregiver Group.
