Caregiver appreciation dinner scheduled for October

| September 2, 2016

COSHOCTON – The annual Coshocton County Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 7, at Coshocton Village Inn and Suites from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with complimentary mini-massages for the caregivers and time to see what all of the exhibitors have to offer for caregivers in Coshocton County.

This is a free dinner for any unpaid caregiver caring for a friend, spouse, neighbor, parent, grandparent, disabled child or any relative. It is not for paid caregivers or for volunteer recognition. The only requirement is the caregiver must reside in Coshocton County. The person they are caring for may reside anywhere including assisted living or a nursing facility

“The purpose behind this dinner is to let family caregivers know how much they are appreciated as caregivers often don’t get the pat on the back they so richly deserve and this dinner is the community’s way of thanking them for all they do,” said Holly Gadd, RN at Area Agency on Aging. “We will also be selecting a Coshocton County Caregiver of the Year, we are looking for stories of caregivers in the county that go above and beyond in the care of their loved one.” The recipient of the award will receive their framed nomination, a framed certificate and a special gift basket.

Caregivers and one guest will be treated to a complimentary meal. While this is a free event, registration is required. To make a reservation or to obtain a Caregiver of the Year nomination form, contact Holly at (800) 945-4250 ext. 4719 with your name and phone number and address, no later than Oct. 1.

This complimentary luncheon is sponsored by the collaborative efforts of Area Agency on Aging Region 9, Kno-Ho-Co Senior Center, Zandex Health Care, Northside Oxygen and Medical Equipment, Ten Lakes Center, Simply EZ Home Delivered Meals and Oak Pointe Nursing and Rehab.
