At Dearborn County Hospital, you will quickly see we take our mission statement seriously... to provide personalized, comprehensive and quality healthcare with compassion, dignity and respect that exceeds the expectations of those we serve. Our commitment to patient care goes beyond the walls of the hospital extending to the health and wellness of our communities in Southeastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and Southwestern Ohio.
Many people find help and comfort in talking with others who share similar challenges. A variety of free supportive gatherings meet at DCH to assist the community. One advantage of support groups is helping someone realize that he or she is not alone and that there are others in similar situations who may be able to help. Support groups can help one to develop new skills in relating to others and new ways of dealing with a particular problem.
Some of the support groups that meet at DCH are to aid those who are coping with grief, those dealing with different struggles such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, and those who have suffered a stroke or have diabetes. Patients, their families, friends and their caregivers are encouraged to attend these groups to offer support and share experiences.
