COVID-19 Update

Classes and Events

Although the coronavirus pandemic has caused postponements and cancellations of some in-person classes and events,  Called to Care and partner agencies have adapted several activities using remote access (telephone and video conferencing) to provide family caregivers with support, encouragement, problem solving strategies and reliable information to take care of themselves and their loved ones.  Please join in.  Kindly call the contact listed or visit the website to confirm details.

Caregiver Cafés

These monthly sessions will offer a time of respite and restoration-- a time to share and support one another; to learn from resource experts who address key aspects of caregiving and well-being; and to engage in solution-oriented approaches to challenging issues.  Members of the Called to Care team, physicians, chaplains and social workers will be among this supportive circle to care for you.  Please join us.
