In-Person Caregiver Workshops
Our in-person workshops will connect you with resources, support, and encouragement you need on your caregiving journey. Join in, ask questions, and leave with the tools you need to keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy.
After our in-person workshops, you can visit the "vendor" tables, staffed by community organizational members who will share information with you about the caregiving related services their organization offers.
Registration is FREE for our In-person Caregiver Workshops.
If you cannot attend, you can always find the slide deck our presenters used as well as any handouts given along with ways to connect with our speakers' organizations.
