A Community Conversation: Caring for the Caregiver
LIVE November 3 at 7pm on WSKG Radio
More and more people are in a position of having to provide care for an aging or chronically ill parent, spouse or child. It isn't a role that is chosen, but one that is taken on because it is needed. This program discusses ways to be able to "do it" without burning out and how to find respite and relief for you, the caregiver. Where do you turn to for advice and guidance? How can these organizations help?
