Description & Services
Description Caregiver Support Group 
The Indus Caregiver Support Group is organized on a monthly basis for caregivers and volunteers. These are group sessions designed to educate, inform and empower caregivers. Participants will learn more about various health related issues and information on other programs available in the community to support and help the care giving process. 
 
Friendly Visiting Program 
Friendly visiting program is designed to maintain social and emotional interaction for socially isolated and cognitively impaired seniors in the comfort of their home, hospital, and long term care setting. 
Screened and trained volunteers engage clients in meaningful activities providing respite and support to caregivers. 
Clients in this program receive ongoing security reassurance checks which are simply a quick, regular telephone call confirming the clients health and well-being
