The annual Carroll County Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon will be held April 18 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Atwood Lake Resort.
The Carroll County Caregiver Coalition, made up of several area agencies, is planning the luncheon. Registration and relaxation stations begin at 10:30 a.m. This is a complimentary event for any unpaid family caregiver residing in Carroll County. The person being cared for may live in any county, and may live with you, someone else or reside in a nursing home or assisted living.
The day will consist of a complementary lunch, entertainment, door prizes, fellowship with other caregivers, and information from area businesses that can help make the caregiving journey a little easier. In addition, one caregiver will be chosen as “Carroll County Caregiver of the Year.” The award is given to the caregiver who best demonstrates what all caregivers go through on a daily basis...the unselfish devotion and dedication it takes to care for another person.
The caregiver of the year will receive a framed certificate, their framed nomination, and a gift chosen especially for them. All nominees will be honored at the luncheon, and all will receive their framed nomination. Nominations must be submitted no later than April 11.
The event is free but reservations are required. To make a reservation for the luncheon, or request a Caregiver of the Year nomination form, contact Laurel at 800-945-4250 ext. 4719 by April 11.
Sponsors to date for this event are The Area Agency on Aging Region 9, Community Hospice, Dusini Drug, and M.C. Mobility.
