About Monthly Caring for Caregivers Group

We are pleased to announce a monthly support group for our Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Back Bay adult patients, their family and friends who are their caregivers. This group is for caregivers with family members, friends who are over 50 years old and have acute or chronic illness, dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. 

Caregivers are very special people. They are often so busy juggling life responsibilities along with caregiving that they have little or no time for themselves.
This group will be a safe and non-judgmental space to meet. The structure will be flexible.  We will provide resources, tools, coping strategies and support.  It will be led by Back Bay’s LICSW, Joanne T. Pomodoro, who is familiar with the needs of caregivers.
