Benefits of Joining a Support Group
Support groups bring together people who are going through or have gone through similar experiences. The common understanding among support group members often means they have similar feelings, worries, everyday problems, treatment decisions or side effects. Consider making connections and getting help from a support group today. The support groups do not meeting in December. To confirm meeting dates, please call Older Adult Services at 248.347.0414.
