Caregiver Support Group

An eight-week support group for caregivers (family or friends)  who have a loved one with a cancer diagnosis. This group may touch upon such topics as managing at home, relationships, and dealing with emotion. The group will focus on the self-care of the caregiver and aims to decrease stress while talking to others who are facing similar circumstances.

Session Dates: Fall 2021: Wednesday, October 6- November 24, 7:00-8:30 pm-This session is currently full

Facilitator: Teri Henderson, M.S.W, R.S.W has been a facilitator at GCGT for 3 years. As a Social Worker, Teri’s focus is in the area of caregiver support, mindfulness-informed end-of-life care, hospice and palliative care, and resiliency.

Please note Caregiver group is a virtual support group that requires a meeting with Program staff prior to your first attendance.  

Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto offers 8-week support groups three times a year. Our support groups are run by mental health professionals who have a strong understanding of the unique needs of individuals who have been impacted by cancer.

Support groups are not operated on a drop-in basis. We encourage commitment to the entire 8-week.  A commitment to the group helps to build community and allows for topics and conversations to be built on week by week.
