Support Services

Caregiver Support Group

In the midst of caring for a loved one, it is easy to wrestle with the weight of that role. 

While often rewarding, caregiving requires a tremendous amount of energy and strength. 

It is important to take some time for yourself to recharge.  Join us as we share the

challenges and the rewards of caregiving.  The purpose of this group is to create a

community of support of caregivers and their families in an open forum to share

experiences and resources.  No RSVP required. 

Facilitated by Lance Slatton from Enriched Life Home Care Services. 

Held the third Monday of every month at 6 p.m.


Grief Support Group

There are so many emotions we go through when we lose a loved one, as well as the courage it takes to confront these emotions.  Whether you've lost someone in the past few months or years ago, we have a safe space for you.  You are not alone.  The purpose of this group is to create a community of support in an open forum to discuss experiences and resources.

Facilitated by St. Joseph Mercy Bereavement Center.  This is an open group to MSHL members, no RSVP required.

Held the third Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m.


Pressure on Health Initiative

A mission driven preventative health initiative and community collaborative which provides blood pressure monitors and oxygen meters to seniors with  a medical order to monitor themselves at home who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the medical equipment.  Participants are referred to MSHL by their doctor to receive the monitor needed, the batteries to operate the machine, and materials about the services and programs offered at MSHL.
