WebEx – Online Video Conference
This post-COVID support group hosted by Kenmore Mercy Hospital will help virus survivors, loved ones, and care providers cope with a variety of issues and allow them to connect with others through their similar journeys.
These sessions are free and open to public. For more information or to register, call Kenmore Mercy Patient Care Services at (716) 447-6211. Participants should register for each month’s session separately.
The COVID support group is open to those who themselves have had the virus or have experienced it through a loved one or providing care, and wish to discuss their thoughts, fears, challenges, hopes and anything else related to the coronavirus. The goal is to help them find their new normal, address concerns, and provide resources.
“Recovering from COVID-19 can be a lengthy process, and each person’s experience is different,” said Dr. Gough. “Through this support group, they will see that they are not alone. It provides them with a safe space to talk about their experiences and challenges, among others with similar struggles.”
Sessions will cover common experiences in recovery from COVID-19 including:
- Issues with sleep, memory or concentration
- Physical challenges
- Depression and anxiety
- Concerns about health, future medical care or COVID re-infection
- Trauma related to illness or hospitalization
- Changes to family roles, relationships and friendships
The group will also focus on coping strategies and building resilience.
Please call (716) 447-6211 to register. Registration is required to receive information for logging into the WebEx meeting.
If you or a loved one would like to attend more than one session, we ask that you register for each month’s session separately.
