This is a group my mom usually attends and we had hired a caregiver to come in for two hours ($50) so we could go out together. It was definitely not the right place for me. Mom seems to get something out of it, so I support her in going. I have a friend who spent the last two years caring for her husband before he passed of stomach cancer and she's been my best go-to for support. If I can get out of the house, I'd rather spend it doing something light and not related to caregiving. I'm not naive to the path we're headed down and while advice on local resources would be great, I can tell that group is not going to be of much help.
