Grandparents Group

Share and Receive Support Alongside Peers


A support group for grandparents who are currently taking on guardian roles and in need of processing the impact the role has in their daily lives.

This group will address questions like how the participants are coping with the guardian role during their golden year stages of life. The group will also serve as a community for the participants to connect and engage in topics that grandparents are facing at the current stage of their lives.
