Letter: Caregivers group forming

With the help of many individuals and organizations, including the Alzheimer’s Association, Aging Together is helping to organize a Rappahannock County caregivers support group that will start meeting regularly in early June.

We know there are many people throughout the county who are doing the hard work of caring for a loved one, and we know how isolating and challenging that work can be. We want to offer them a chance to come together once or twice a month to share their experiences, to learn from each other, and to help each other find the information, services, and support they need. And we’re happy to say that we’ll be able to offer professional respite care at the same location so caregivers can be free to sit, relax, and share coffee and stories.

Caregivers, please let us hear from you! No meeting schedule has been set yet because we want to first hear what days or times would work for you. To join the group, or to find out more, contact me at lstillwell@agingtogether.org or at 540-675-2531.
