Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) invites caregivers of older adults from the Bowling Green area to take a well-deserved break from 5-9 p.m. on April 11, a Friday, with a night out.
Many caregivers spend all of their time taking care of the ones they love. Although it is many times rewarding, the stresses of caregiving can take a toll on the caregiver. The WCCOA wants to provide a special night out to thank those caregivers for all of the special care they provide.
Caregivers participating in the event may choose from one of two "night out" options.
The first option includes a meal sponsored by Max & Erma's, followed by shopping at Levis Commons in Perry burg, sponsored by St. Clare Commons.
The second option is an alternative evening of spending time independently.
