Interested in a St. Johns County-Offered Caregiver Support Group?
The role of a family caregiver is difficult. In addition to taking care of their loved one, caregivers must also lead their own lives and fulfill multiple responsibilities. Caregiver support groups give you dedicated time to be with other people who share similar issues. To help support our employees, St. Johns County is considering sponsoring a voluntary support group for employees in a caregiver role.  If you play the role of a family caregiver and would benefit from a support group, please complete this brief survey. The feedback we receive will help us determine next steps.

Introducing Racing for Wellness
Sponsorship of employee-led teams to walk, run, or bike in a race/event. Our first event is the Bike MS: PGA TOUR Cycle to the Shore on October 13 and 14.  Get more information about the St. Johns County Wellness Wheelers, and registering for the team.

This is How We Roll, Lunchtime Rides
Whether you're joining the Bike MS team or not, if you're interested in cycling, join us for a lunchtime bike ride every day around noon starting from the MIS parking lot.  Everyone welcome regardless of fitness level and this is a great way to prepare for the MS ride.  The route is mostly through the quiet neighborhood behind MIS but also goes by County Administration and HHS buildings. Contact Bill Barrett, Bob Jolley or Danny Phillips for more information.
