If you know a caregiver and have some time to spare, ask them if they need a break. Provide an afternoon of respite. Wash the windows. Anything you can do to help the caregiver will be appreciated more than you’ll know. Many caregivers will not ask for the help, so by reaching out to them would be so, so helpful.

 

Drop ins are welcome. If you have any questions please call Becky Losby or Julie Larson at 845-7471.
