Monroe County Caregiver Support Group When you attend a support group, you get to meet other people who are in the same situation as yourself. You get to understand that you are not alone and the emotional roller coaster ride that you are going through is normal. If you are taking care of a loved one, neighbor, or friend with their finances, household chores, transportation or just checking on their welfare, “you” are a caregiver.
