The Goldstone Caregiver Center at Danbury Hospital

Providing support to caregivers

Contact Us
The Goldstone Caregiver Center at Danbury Hospital, located in Buck Pavilion, provides support to caregivers who are caring for a family member or friend regardless of location. As a caregiver, you have likely struggled physically, emotionally or spiritually at some point during your journey. Recognizing that healthy self-care is essential, the Goldstone Caregiver Center provides support to caregivers in a variety of ways. You don’t have to be caring for a patient of Nuvance Health to access our support and programs.

Support groups

You may benefit from:

  • Caregiver Support Group: Being a Caregiver can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be one of the most difficult and isolating times a person can go through. If you are caring for a family member and have experienced frustration, sadness, guilt or anxiety through your caregiving journey, you are not alone. Take the opportunity to meet other caregivers to share your experiences and learn strategies to reduce your stress. Please contact Jennifer Salkin, LMFT, Lead Caregiver Support Coordinator at (203) 739-7027 or to learn more.
  • Grief Recovery Method® Grief Support Group: This group meets for eight weeks and offers a step-by-step action program for moving beyond death, divorce and other losses. Group members are expected to attend all sessions. To register or for further information, contact Chaplain Beryl Knudsen, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist at (203) 739-7135 or
  • Living with Loss Support Group: This bereavement group is specially geared towards caregivers. Losing someone you have been caring for can be life altering, leaving a lasting impact emotionally, mentally, and socially.  Some caregivers carry many different emotions as they grieve.  Some caregivers find that they are reinventing themselves and their role in life.  We invite you to learn more about this grief group for caregivers. Please email for more details and to discuss possible meeting times.

Stay in Touch

The Stay in Touch program is dedicated to supporting our caregivers beyond the hospital discharge of your family member or friend, or after the death of your loved one. We know that your journey can be challenging. Stay in Touch can help to reduce the isolation that caregivers often experience, provide essential resources or just someone to speak with. We are here for you! For more information, contact Juanita Harris, LPC, Stay in Touch Program Coordinator at (203) 739-7762 or
