Caregiver program connects public with local health & support agencies


MONTICELLO, NY — Caregivers or individuals with illnesses who may need help now or in the future can connect with local health and support agencies at a free educational opportunity in May. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County’s Caregiver Resource Center will offer Because We Care, a health information fair and forum, on Thursday, May 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Ted Stroebele Recreation Center. Coffee, light refreshments and door prizes will be provided.

Over 20 Sullivan County and Mid-Hudson agencies will share information on finding options and making informed decisions. The afternoon will allow individuals and families to circulate and gather helpful materials. Starting at 2 p.m. a panel representing various long-term care or health fields will share their expertise.

Pre-registration for this program is encouraged by calling CCE at 845/292-6180 or emailing Bonnie Lewis, RN at bjl25@cornell.edu.
