The Mission of the Saint Michael and All Angels Caregivers Support Group is to assist those in our parish who are caring for a loved one.  We do this by providing a confidential place to share feelings and experiences of caregiving and by providing books, pamphlets, and handouts on a variety of topics related to caregiving in the Church Library.  Click here for our Index of Church Library Resources for Caregivers.

Care Givers Support Group meets weekly on Mondays at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Parlor.  Contact: Sandra Klingeman; jsklingeman@sbcglobal.net.

Gentle on Her Mind by Kim Campbell:  Alzheimer’s had taken so much from Glen Campbell…and from his wife. Caring for him was the one thing she had left.
