To support our local family caregivers of people with dementia, Chris Foster, CEO of A Hand To Hold Senior Home Care, is offering a workshop on April 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Delegal’s Sunset Pavilion that was developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI). This Dealing with Dementia Workshop provides tips and strategies for caregivers on best practices for caring for their loved ones and themselves.
