Caring for the Caregiver: Virtually every one of us will care for a loved one at some point in our life. Though rewarding, it is not always easy. The Nourish for Caregivers ministry understands that family caregivers need somewhere to turn to for information, support in their faith and personal connection during the caregiver journey. Each Nourish gathering provides practical approaches, tools and resources to help navigate these times with a Christ-centered view.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is pleased to announce its first Nourish for Caregivers support group:
