Grandparents Support

Raising children ­ all over again ­ can be hard work.

But it has its moments, too.

For Grandparents raising grandchildren who need support with resources, legal issues and offer tips on the challenges of raising grandchildren. A trained facilitator provides guidance and education. Many grandparents today are raising their grandchildren. That can bring a whole new set of challenges and questions, such as legal issues, discipline, and money. And a large age gap. The good news is that many grandparents have faced these challenges and are ready to give you their support. Second Time Around, a grandparents support group offered by Family Health Care, has a trained facilitator to help you explore this new time in your life.

This support group can help you:
• Refresh your parenting skills
• Build a new relationship with your grandchildren
• Learn what’s “in”
• Learn how to work with your grandchild’s school
• Discover community resources
• Explore tips for managing money
• Find out how to navigate the legal issues
