Most in person meeting have the option to Zoom in. After welcome and announcements, often a medical or community based professional will present, or at times a peer will discuss tips on survivorship and steps toward recovery. Cane and Able offers whole group support, as well as split group support - bringing caregivers together in one room and survivors together in another room to share like concerns. Programs and events are published in advance and distributed by email and postal mail, as well as all updates to activities are on our website:
