August 22, 2011
Times Leader
ST. CLAIRSVILLE — The first Belmont County Caregiver Appreciation Dinner will be held on Wed, September 14 from 6-8 p.m. at Undo’s restaurant on 51130 National Rd East in St. Clairsville. This event is sponsored by several local agencies who want to acknowledge the contribution unpaid caregivers make to the community. This is a free dinner for any in-home, 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. There is no age requirement. The only requirement is the caregiver must reside in Belmont County. The person they are caring for may reside anywhere. “The purpose behind this dinner is to let family caregivers know how much they are appreciated” states Laurel DuBeck, RN from the Area Agency on Aging, Region 9. DuBeck goes on to say caregivers often don’t get “the pat on the back” they so richly deserve and this dinner is the communities way of thanking them for all they do. Caregivers and one guest will be treated to a complimentary meal, entertainment, door prizes, relaxation stations and a wealth of information from exhibitors showcasing services that are available to caregivers to make the journey easier for them and the person they care for. While this is a free event, registration is required. To make a reservation for this event contact Laurel at (800) 932-7277 ext. 4719 with your name and phone number. Also at this dinner, a caregiver will be chosen “Belmont County Caregiver of the Year.” If you know a caregiver who has a unique story or goes above and beyond for the person they are caring for, please call Laurel and ask for a nomination form. All nominees receive their framed nomination and the person chosen Caregiver of the Year receives a framed certificate and a gift basket in addition to their framed story. Sponsors of this event are: The Area Agency on Aging, Region 9; National Rehab Equipment; Emerald Pointe; Interim of SEO; Peterson Rehab Hospital; Belmont Senior Services; Valley Hospice and Amedysis Hospice Services, Carriage Inn Home Care and Fosterbridge, Inc.
