SUPPORT GROUPS


Cancer Resource Group

The Cancer Resource Group seeks to help both patients and caregivers navigate the new world of emotions, needs, and treatments by pairing with someone who has previously coped with a similar diagnosis. Meetings or interactions will be personalized as the patient/caregiver desires. Please contact Susan Hauser at 972.378.7852 to request pairing or to become a part of the resource group as a survivor or health-care provider.


Treasured Times Alzheimer’s Support

Treasured Times is a respite ministry of Custer Road UMC designed to provide care to those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) or related dementia in a safe, secure and caring environment, allowing those with the disease to enjoy socialization outside the home and their caregivers to enjoy time to themselves free from worry and responsibility. St. Andrew supports this caring mission and those with family or friends needing this respite ministry. If you would like to volunteer to serve in this wonderful initiative, please contact Steve Love, or click here for more information.


Families Anonymous

Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., Room 121
Families Anonymous is a fellowship of parents, relatives and friends who have faced up to the reality that a loved one’s addiction to alcohol, drugs, or harmful behaviors is seriously affecting our lives and ability to function. Just about every one of us has made the same statement at one time or another: “But I’m not the one who needs help!” It seems obvious when someone else has a problem. On reflection, we might ask ourselves: If the other person has the problem, how come my life seems unmanageable, and I feel like I am going insane?

Participants of Families Anonymous are dedicated to doing something constructive about our approach to someone else’s problem. We begin to learn from our own experience and benefit from the shared experiences of others in the fellowship. We realize that we are not alone, and that we can know a new freedom from worry and despair. We can know peace. Contact David Ashburner for more information.
