Caregiver Support Initiative January Update

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." Leo Buscaglia
The Caregiver Support Initiative is directed at the needs of unpaid family caregivers to seniors.
