What are Support Groups?

Support groups are a safe place for caregivers to meet and develop a mutual support system. It’s a place to:

  • Exchange practical information on caregiving problems & possible solutions
  • Talk through challenges and ways of coping
  • Share feelings, needs and concerns
  • Learn about community resources that are available

Is there a fee?

The cost to attend one of A.C.E.'s Caregiver Support Groups is based on income. A cost-share sliding fee scale is used to determine cost of services. However, no one will be denied services because of their inability or unwillingness to pay for services.

Because this service is made possible, in part, under the Federal Older Americans Act through a grant award from the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging (MNRAAA) under an Area Plan approved by the Minnesota Board on Aging, certain guidelines must be strictly adhered to. Cost sharing is one of those guidelines. A.C.E. of Southwest Minnesota has a fully established and implemented Cost Share Policy/Statement of Value Process for Title III program participants with coordinating sliding scales.
