FCSS Support Groups

Did you know that Yellowhead County FCSS offers several support groups? We have groups for Caregivers who may be in need of some support, those dealing with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, and for those struggling with Grief.

Caregiver Support Group

This is a valuable opportunity for caregivers to get together and talk about their caregiving journey in a safe and confidential environment. Caregivers can be caring for their parents, their spouses, an elderly friend, a family member, or their children.

2022: September 20, October 18, November 15

2023: January 17, February 21, March 21, April 18, May 16, June 20

Take this opportunity to learn from others who are experiencing the same challenges and stresses.

Join us at the Yellowhead County Wildwood Office or online via Zoom every third Tuesday at 4:00 PM.

Grief Support Group

Are you dealing with grief? Grief can occur when someone loses a pet, their job, or a loved one. Grief affects everyone in their own way. Connecting with others and sharing stories helps process the loss.

Join Yellowhead County FCSS & Parkland County for a Grief Support Group that will allow you to:

  • connect with others who are experiencing the same kind of loss
  • develop friendships with people who can identify with and understand what you are going through
  • experience a safe, confidential environment where you and other people experiencing some kind of loss can support each other in your journeys

Please join us at 4:00 PM on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Sessions are in-person at the Wildwood Yellowhead County Office OR online via Zoom.

2022: September 27, October 25, November 22

2023: January 24, February 28, March 28, April 25, May 23, June 27

Snacks and refreshments will be available.
