Description of Organization
The Antioch Caregivers Support Group Ministry was primarily designed to lend support to persons who serve as caregivers giving care for those with Alzheimer's and other dementia related illnesses. The primary focus of this support group for caregivers is to educate, bring awareness training and self-care for care recipients and caregivers.
Each month, the support group meets at Antioch AME Zion Church in Eastover, SC for approximately 2 hours from 2-4 on the second Thursday. A variety of formats have been used to provide helpful information and resources to the caregivers. Workshops and seminars led by trained professionals, panel discussion, round table discussion, video presentations, topics dealing with mental health, dealing with emotions such as guilt and depression have been addressed.
Currently, this program serves Lower Richland County. Dr. Robert T. Benton serves as Program Director.
