Caregiver Support Group
Dec 24, 2017 01:43 pm | Newton PTO Council

The Caregiver Support Group, run by Newton’s Department of Senior Services, has the goal of providing participants with support including an opportunity to learn about resources and sharing ideas with people who are facing similar challenges.

So many residents are being pulled in multiple directions — with children in school while also caring for an aging parent. This is a great chance for parents to connect with others who are caring for an elderly family member.

Open to all family caregivers of seniors, the groups are free of charge. Support Groups take place at the Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville. Registration is required; space is limited to 14 people per group.

NEW Evening Option
2nd Wednesday Monthly (January 10th, February 14th, March 14th)
7:00 – 8:30 pm.

For information and to Register contact Case Manager Emily Kuhl at 617-796-1672.

Programs for younger players are based on school grade, and teams are put together based on elementary school and friend requests: T-Ball (Pre- K), Rookie (Kindergarten), Farm (grade 1) and Single A (grade 2). In the programs for older players, teams are put together with more of a focus on competitive balance: AA (grades 3-4), AAA (grades 4-6) and Majors (ages 10-12).

There is also a Challenger division for students with special needs who wish to enjoy the game of baseball. All players interested in playing in the 2018 AA or AAA divisions must attend an evaluation session and complete registration prior to the evaluation date. The AAA evaluations will be held on January 20th and the AA evaluations will be held on February 10th.
