IVC Support Groups

IVC currently offers two support groups. Support Groups provide safe spaces where people can share their feelings and thoughts in a confidential and non-judgemental setting.

The Caregivers’ Support Group meets every Tuesday from 2:00 pm to 3:30 at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church. It is open to anyone who is caring for a loved one who is ill.  Karen Carson facilitates this and can be contacted at karenhoerrcarson@gmail.com.

IVC offers two programs for those grieving the death of a loved one. Our Compassionate Companions Program provides one-on-one peer support by trained volunteers. Our volunteers are nurturing, empathic listeners committed to being present to their care receivers. Our Grief Support Groups provide a safe place where people can feel comfortable with their emotions in a confidential and secure setting. In addition, people meet others who are also experiencing grief and loss, and share their stories. For more information about either of these programs, please contact Robin Gaphni  at 842-4441 or .
