Caregiving for a loved one can be a thankless task, emotionally draining. A caregiver support group gives caregivers a place where they can meet and speak with other in a similar situation. 


Ladies of Summer Luncheons

Even though we don't have regular meetings during the summer, we do get together once a month and go out for lunch. We go on a different day each month starting in June with Tuesday and working our way toward Friday in September. The final lunch in September also involves a few games and special fun, thanks to Dee Rogers. Click below to see the schedule and locations of the luncheons.
