Meeting is for caregivers
Caregiving is a difficult and often challenging role that one can undertake. Taking the opportunity to share information and feel connected to others who are providing care is a vital step to perform this task to the best of your ability.
Take the opportunity from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 12 at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd., to become connected and rejuvenated at your local support group. Refreshments will be served and free respite care is available to qualified caregivers. Advance authorization is required for respite services.
