How we care for one another
Mutual Support is not just a committee:
It is a philosophy
We have joined together to care for one another and to share both sad and joyous times for more than 35 years.
Our community possesses varied and rich resources - our own skills and experiences. Sometimes an empathic connection with someone who has gone through a similar crisis or has handled a common problem can make a world of difference. In addition, members with expertise may be able to offer guidance.
It is sometimes easier to offer help than to ask for it. However, Mutual Support is a give and take operation. We all need help at sometime in our lives. Please tell us when you have a need with a telephone call to 516.627.6274 or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the more concrete ways in which we have been able to help one another, include, but are not limited to:
- Meals for a mourning family
- Assistance in planning a funeral
- Transportation to doctors’ appointments, shopping and synagogue activities
- Hospital and home visits
- Life cycle event support
