This is a group for family members raising a loved one on the Spectrum. Caregiving can be an all-consuming process and we do not always take the time to reflect on our own experiences and emotions as we care for others. In this group, we will discuss caregiving through the lifespan and through the lens of loss and grief, and we will discover ways to take care of our emotional and physical health in the process. Facilitated by Jennifer Wiles, LMHC, BC-DMT, Beth Israel Lahey Health at Home. Open to all at no cost through a generous grant from The New York Life Foundation.
