Are you in need of emotional support, prayer, advice, or encouragement while caring for a spouse, parent or other loved one?

Bethany has created a caregiver community for caregivers and loved ones can interact and learn from each other in a safe, supportive environment. Devotions and prayer accompany our time together.
Caregivers of adults with chronic physical or cognitive conditions such as Alzheimer’s, stroke, Parkinson’s, Spinal Cord Injuries and other illnesses share their own expertise and receive support, encouragement and prayer. By attending, we hope to empower caregivers to improve care for themselves. This group is open to the community.
