The August Caregiver support Group meeting will be held on Thursday, August 31st, 2017.

Our speaker will be Lou Donaldson with TLC Caregivers.

TLC offers 24-hour non medical care, giving peace of mind to countless families in our area. They provide timely care to assist individuals in their independence and provide families respite as they care for their loved ones.

An overview of the agencies services will be provided in this meeting.


We are in the process of “moving” our site from one location to another.

Just like in the real world you can not have a box of “stuff” in two places at the same time.

Some online files/information will not be linked until everything gets unpacked.

Also, just like in real life sometimes things get broken when you move – if it happens they will get fixed.
