Winter Cancellation Policy: If schools are closed or have an early dismissal due to inclement weather in the town where your support group meets, Danbury, Norwich, Hamden/North Haven, there will be no support group meeting. For those in Danbury and Norwich, I am commuting one hour to your location. Weather in North Haven is often different than yours since I am in Northern New Haven County. If schools are closed or have an early dismissal in North Haven, no matter how the weather is at your location, I will not travel. I spent 25 years in public safety. Unnecessary and non emergency travel in inclement weather conditions prompting cancellations is a hazard not only to your safety but others on the road as well as first responders. School Cancellations can be viewed on WFSB Hartford Channel 3 and WTNH New Haven Channel 8, WVIT Channel 30.
The first rule of being a caregiver is to care for yourself. Safety is self care.
The Backus Hospital HD Program is run by Debbie Pausig, MFT, a psychotherapist working with those experiencing life with Huntington's Disease. Debbie has personally journeyed Huntington's Disease as a spouse and caregiver, and provides care, treatment and education to patients with HD and their families. This group is open to all HD family members, providing a warm, welcoming enviroment.
