Caregiver event April 20

Are you caring for a loved one, perhaps a spouse, parent, relative or friend? Are you at your wits end trying to find in-home care, respite care and skilled medical care? Being a caregiver is intense. Caregiving can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have, and the most exhausting.

You are invited to join us for a Care Givers Resource Event on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Willapa Valley Grange, 290 Camp One Road in Raymond.

Local resources will be on hand to share their expertise with our community. Agencies include Harbors Home Health & Hospice, Senior Information and Assistance, Senior Companions, Personal Service Providers, Home Care Northwest and more.

At 11 a.m., Kirsten Harvill from the Pacific County Emergency Management Agency will speak to “Preparing and caring for a loved one in a disaster.” At 1 p.m. Eric Nessa, from the Olympic Area Agency on Aging will share tools for self-care through his presentation entitled “You are not alone in your caregiving journey.”

This event is free, and everyone is invited to attend. Stop by and join us for snacks, raffles and more.
