Caregivers Support

Second desires to provide a platform for support of our members who are caring for aging or sick family members, or special needs loved ones.

Some are caring within the home, some overseeing care in an institutional setting, some providing support to loved ones out of town. Some are sons or daughters, some spouses, some parents, some nieces or nephews, etc. Whatever the situation, there are many stresses for the individuals involved.

If you would like to share concerns, exchange ideas and experiences, we encourage you to email or call (901) 531-6169 we will set up a time for a personalized consultation with a seasoned caregiver who also has professional training to support caregivers.

For caregivers of those with special needs, we offer respite nights throughout the year, which create a space for individuals with special needs to spend time in community, while giving caretakers and parents a time to rest!
