AN ALSKA CAREGIVER RESPITE
Virtual Caregiver Support Groups
You can attend the alska virtual caregiver support groups without having to find a respite caregiver, drive for miles or even put your shoes on. The virtual support groups are a part of your monthly alska subscription and you can attend as many as you want as a part of your $8.99 per month subscription. The support groups are facilitated and topic-specific rather than a chat room or discussion board. Simply check the alska calendar for upcoming meetings after you create your account and click on the link to join the group at the indicated time.
