Gardendale Public Library Hosts Caregiver Event at Civic Center Today

The Gardendale Public Library will be hosting an event for adults on Friday, February 17th at the Gardendale Civic Center at 10:30 am and is part of the Martha Moore Library’s Social Café Series.

The guest speaker for the event is local business owner and the Director of The Day Place, Angela Hammond. The event is titled Caregiver TLC and is focused on aiding and helping caregivers for loved ones with memory disorders, such as dementia.

Angela told the Herald that she will be “bringing a craft that I did with some of our Friends at the Day Place. I will show how I simplified the process step by step to allow Friends to do as much independently as possible. This will help me talk about dementia, managing the changes and, ultimately, I will be discussing Caregiver support and the importance of taking care of themselves.”

The event is free and open to the public.
