Family Caregiver Event
06/17/2019 - 06/28/2019
These events are just for you! Direction Home understands how stressful it can be when you are caring for a loved one. You want to do the right thing but it's easy to feel overwhelmed with the responsibility. We want you to know it's OK. Join us as we gather information and explore some proven methods to relieve some of that stress of caring for loved ones and patients. Register for the dinner or the lunch, or feel free to attend both! Both workshops are FREE and include a meal.
