Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group
FCAN's Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group is a 5-week support group held by FCAN's MSW social workers and designed to support the unique needs of older caregivers raising young children. Within the HIV-affected community, many older caregivers have assumed the responsibility of raising grandchildren after the loss of a primary caregiver. The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group is a place for older caregivers to receive peer and professional support to best prepare them for the issues they face in their new roles. Past groups have demonstrated increases in coping with loss, stress, and increased education levels about issues specific to HIV-affected families.
