The James Tur­rell Skys­pace at Chest­nut Hill Friends Meet­ing is open to the pub­lic ev­ery Sun­day evening.

Well Spouse Sup­port Group

A new Well Spouse sup­port group meet­ing the fourth Tues­day of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Cen­ter on the Hill at the Pres­by­te­rian Church, 8855 Ger­man­town Ave., Chest­nut Hill.

Fa­cil­i­ta­tors for the group are Fern Zei­gler, Claire Salvi and David Hale. All have many years of spousal care­giv­ing. All care about help­ing the care­giver.

When one is ill, two need help. When a per­son gets a di­ag­no­sis of a dis­ease or be­comes phys­i­cally dis­abled, their spouse/part­ner is there to help, but who is there to help the “care­giver”? This can be a lonely and some­times over­whelm­ing and fright­en­ing pur­suit for the “well spouse/part­ner.”

When some­one be­comes a care­giver for their spouse or part­ner, their life changes. What were once shared ac­tiv­i­ties/re­spon­si­bil­i­ties be­gin to fall more and more on the care­giver. Meals, shop­ping, laun­dry, clean­ing, child care and fi­nan­cial mat­ters are just a few of the things the care­giver may be­gin to carry alone. Va­ca­tion plans and dreams in­evitably change. Friends may dis­ap­pear. Fam­ily may not be as avail­able as one would hope. Some level of de­pres­sion may oc­cur.

One form of self-help is a sup­port group. This is a group of peo­ple who face sim­i­lar prob­lems. It is a place of respite and even laugh­ter, a place where you are truly un­der­stood and you don’t have to ex­plain your­self. It is also a place for shar­ing of re­sources and ways to care for self.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Fern Zei­gler at 484686-7689 or fernzei­gler@ gmail.com or Claire Salvi at 215-407-5567.
