Caregiver Support Initiative
We are grateful for all community members who are providing care for a family member during this challenging time. Family caregiving is a full-time job that can't prevent social distancing. If you know someone who is caring for a family member during this challenging time, we encourage you to call them to see how they are doing and thank them for the care they provide. How has COVID-19 affected your caregiving experience?
While we must limit our physical closeness, we can expand our social connection and strengthen our community. Read on how caregivers can create and expand their circle of support here: https://washoecaregivers.org/support-circle/.
