National Family Caregivers Month Celebration: Care Comes Home
Your loved ones’ care does not always take place in a health care facility. Most care actually occurs in the home – and that’s a good thing. People are healthier at home and health care costs are reduced. Family caregivers have the best interests of their loved ones at heart. However, caregiving at home can take its toll and it certainly takes a lot of planning.
Celebrate National Family Caregivers Month with the Sedgwick County Department on Aging’s Care Comes Home event on Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Alford Branch Library, 3447 S. Meridian in Wichita, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Attend the event to learn more about the challenges of caregiving and to find tips, resources and special treats. Information will be available from the Sedgwick County Department on Aging and other local providers that serve the aging community in Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey Counties.
