In honor of National Caregivers Month, HCCF host Caregiver Appreciation events each November to honor those who provide care for loved ones who are unable to care for themselves. Luncheon organizers are expecting more than one hundred Avery and Watauga county family and kinship caregivers in attendance this year.

The Watauga Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon will be held on November 17th at Casa Rustica Italian Restaurant in Boone.  Those attending this event will enjoy a salad, delicious pasta dishes, garlic bread and dessert.

Both events begin at 11:30 and are open, at no charge, to all Avery or Watauga unpaid family or kinship caregivers. Attendees will receive a goodie bag and have the opportunity to hear about available programs, services and resources to assist in their caregiving journey.

These events are made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.  Some of this year’s luncheon sponsors include:  Bayada Nurses,  Boone United Methodist Church, Appalachian Brian Estates, Medi Home Health & Hospice, Glenbridge Health & Rehabilitation, Cranberry House, Forest Ridge Assisted Living, Deerfield Ridge Assisted Living, Appalachian Home Care, Casa Rustica, The Pedalin Pig, High Country Area Agency on Aging, High Country Council of Governments,  V.
