New Support for Caregivers

If you are caring for someone living at home with Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, we can help! We have limited funding that can assist with:

  • Respite care if you want to take a workshop for caregivers,

  • Technology devices and training, or

  • Personalized, in-home nutrition consultation.

Take a Step Toward Better Health!

These workshops will help you live life more fully with chronic disease, avoid falls, and manage the stress of caregiving. Click on the links below for location and registration information, and check the Healthy Living Program Schedule on our website for the most up to date schedule, as new classes are added regularly.
