Toly getting into the Halloween spirit!
News from inside the circle
Support Is Always Available
At Circle Center, the well-being of caregivers is as important to us as that of our participants. One of the ways we deliver on that is through support groups.
Facilitated by our director of social work, these groups offer opportunities to learn from our staff and guest speakers, ask questions, and gain assurance that you are not alone. All support groups are open to anyone in the community, in addition to the Center's participants and their caregivers. Details are on our caregiver support, but here are when and where our groups meet:
- Parkinson's Support Group: First Tuesday of each month, 6-7:30pm, in-person and on Zoom.
- Caregiver Support Group: 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, 4:30 pm – 6 pm, via Zoom only.
If you or someone you know is feeling stress or just looking to connect with other caregivers, please visit our caregiver support for more info. And of course, our staff are always here to provide support, guidance, and direction to anyone who is caring for a loved one.

"Until we needed Circle Center, we had no idea that services like this existed nor how essential they are to our community. Clients and caregivers alike are able to regain some semblance of their prior lives with Circle Center's support. The staff is simply excellent, well-informed and compassionate, and is appreciated more than can be expressed." -- Family Caregiver
