The SLV Caregivers Support Group meets to learn from other caregivers and professionals in the field while providing the opportunity to gain strength and support for the weeks and months ahead. We offer informational programs, peer support, discussions, and community development among the attendees. The group’s needs and interests will determine the programming of speakers.
The realities and challenges of caregiving a family member can be overwhelming, confusing, and often isolating. The VWC is creating this space for people to come together to support and encourage each other and to share and receive helpful information and guidance. A fund provided by the Valley Women’s Club can help defray up to $100 for a Valley family caregiver to take some time off.
Meetings are on the first Thursday of the month, 2:00–3:30 PM, at the VWC Office at the Highlands Park Senior Center, 8500 Hwy 9, Ben Lomond, CA.
Look for special events on our SLVcaregiver Facebook Page.

Brad Beaulieu and Katie Koepke filled us in on the many benefits of Hospice at our December meeting. They invited people to call for a free “info only” visit to find out if someone is ready for hospice care and get an idea of what might be needed to keep them safely at home. You also can search on the web “Care Compare Hospice” for information on finding quality hospice organizations.
Our January meeting will feature Carol Childers with info on Meals on Wheels and dining at Highlands. After her brief talk, we will share our issues and answers to our caregiving experiences.
