THE CAFE’ OCCURS THE SECOND WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH.
After seeing the need for caregiver support in the area, Crater Community Hospice will begin to host a monthly Caregiver Café. The café is open to all caregivers and will be held on the second Wednesday of each month from 3-4 p.m. with the first on November 14th. It will be held in the multi-purpose room of the Petersburg Public Library at 201 W. Washington St.
“The caregiver café will be a place for caregivers to take a break, talk with others in similar situations, enjoy a cup of coffee and receive support,” said Cindy Hamlin, Development Director for Crater Community Hospice. “Crater Community Hospice saw the need in our community for caregiver support and developed the café to meet that need,” said Tracy Taliaferro, CEO of Crater Community Hospice. “We hope it will be a helpful resource to the caregivers in our community,” said Taliaferro.
The café is open to unpaid caregivers and the person receiving care. The café is a neutral environment to offer support to the community and will be facilitated by the Crater Community Hospice team.
As the only local non-profit hospice started by John Randolph and Southside Regional Medical Centers to serve the local communities, Crater Community Hospice depends upon the giving of our community to support unfunded programs and services to the uninsured and underinsured.
