Emotional Support

Support groups offer information to help cope with a chronic disease or life event. But a big benefit of support groups is meeting people in a similar situation. Our staff guides the group on a particular topic. Most support groups are lead by Prairie Lakes staff, but we do support other groups who are independent. 

Prairie Lakes Support Groups:

  • Prairie Lakes Diabetes Support Group
  • Prairie Lakes Bereavement Support Group
  • Prairie Lakes Cancer Support Group
  • Prairie Lakes Breastfeeding Support Group
