"I attended the Caregivers webinar before Thanksgiving because I knew we needed to engage with more care support for my aging father. Then our support services abruptly ended when my father's housekeeper died unexpectedly. Suddenly I needed to rebuild the basic support network we had established in addition to thinking about services we needed to add. I was so thankful to have just attended the webinar where I learned about resources and people who could help. I sent an email, and the response was immediate. It is a relief to have support through this process. I appreciate that my employer cares about me and makes these services available to support me."
