There are four kinds of people in the world…

those who are caregivers,

those who will be caregivers,

those who have been caregivers

and those who will need caregivers!

Tipton County Caregiver Wellness Groups

Purpose: To encourage and strengthen all residents of Tipton County who are actively providing care for a friend or family member. Funded through the National Family Caregivers Act (OAA)- Title III, the United Way of the Mid South and private donations. The TCCA sponsors one Wellness Group meeting each month. This meeting is planned and facilitated by a volunteer counselor. Meetings may be training sessions and include technical or educational information beneficial to caregivers or may be simply a support session of sharing and discussing common challenges and concerns. Because confidentiality is of major concern to both sponsors and caregivers the motto of these groups is “what is said here stays here.” And because it is so very important that caregivers remember to care for themselves first so that they remain healthy and able to care for their loved ones, another very important motto for our caregivers is “respite, just do it!”

All of our caregiver programs are listed below:

          Marilu,

          The Chorus group is a culmination of several of our participants and they are always looking for additional singers. The group meets during the week here at the Senior Center on varied days and times based on what other programs are scheduled. To participate you just need to come in and fill out a participant form and start coming in when they have practice. They will be participating in the upcoming Veterans Show at the Ruffin theater in September. I’m sure they would love to have you.

          Gary
