McCormick Support Groups and Services

During the COVID-19 closure all caregiver support groups and education series are being offered virtually using our secure Zoom account. Zoom is a web-based software program which allows participants to join with video and audio capabilities. Joining the meeting by phone only is also an option.

Virtual Support Groups are being held at their regularly scheduled times.  Please contact a social worker to register to attend a support group.

If you are not able to attend a virtual support group, our social workers are available via telephone to provide ongoing caregiver support.  If you have questions, are looking for resources, or need support, please contact us.
