ST. GEORGE — Are you a caregiver looking for advice and support? Caregiving can be lonely and overwhelming, but we are here to help!

The Area Agency on Aging is offering an online support group for caregivers every Thursday at 1 p.m. on Zoom. Sheri Reber, a licensed social service worker, facilitates the group.

Caregivers from the community are invited to join in the caregiver conversation. The senior population of Southern Utah is quickly growing, as are the issues that affect them. Caregiving is among the fastest-rising of these issues. There are over 34 million Americans providing unpaid care to an adult age 50 or older. And nearly 16 million are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. But when you’re overwhelmed and exhausted by caregiving responsibilities, it can feel like you’re the only person dealing with so much.
