Journeys has provided support for caregivers and families whose loved one has faced advanced serious illnesses such as cancer, dementia, Huntington’s disease, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, and others.

What Journeys Offers

Support for Families

The Journeys Caregiver Group offers virtual support for individuals navigating an advanced serious illness. We know that sometimes the needs of caregivers get lost in the middle of a loved one’s treatments, appointments, and medical needs. It can be difficult to find others who truly understand the complex challenges caregivers encounter. The Journeys Caregiver Group provides a nonjudgmental place for caregivers to interact, share stories, learn new coping skills, and gain strength from each other. This group meets twice a month for 90 minutes online. The Journeys Caregiver Group is provided at no cost to participants.

Individual Support

If you prefer to receive support not in a group or family setting, we do have other options. Individual consultations for children, teens, or adults are available. This service does have a fee associated.

No matter the prognosis, we want you and your family to feel supported and empowered each step of the way.

“My daughter really looks forward to coming here. I can tell she feels less anxious and it has helped us as a family to talk about the changes we are experiencing.”
“I appreciate the resources I’ve had access to in the Journeys Program. They have helped me feel more confident in parenting my children during this difficult time.”
“The best part of group is that I know I’m not alone in trying to cope with this really tough situation.”
“We laugh, we cry, we share our worries and disappointments, and we celebrate victories both big and small. It’s a safe place where I can just be me.”
“I wasn’t sure if I wanted to attend a group with people whose loved ones had a different diagnosis than my husband’s. Looking back, I’m glad I found this group. Because our loved ones all have different situations, we don’t focus on sharing advice on new treatments or protocols. Rather, we focus on us, the caregivers, and our experiences and needs.”

Journeys is made possible in part by generous grant funding From the Hospice Foundation of the Ozarks and Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.
