A caregiver luncheon was held last week at the Two Harbors Community Center. “We see a lot of caregivers doing it on their own ... they get burned out,” said Tina Wall, of Community Partners. She wanted them to feel appreciated and keep up their hard work. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint.” Mayor Randy Bolen was also at the meeting to recite a city proclamation about National Family Caregivers Month.
Community Partners, the Living at Home/Block Nurse Program of Two Harbors, works to enable older persons to remain independent in their own homes. Community Partners is funded by the state of Minnesota with a grant from the Elderberry Institute; the Northland Foundation; the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation; the Two Harbors Area Fund; Lake County; United Way, St. Luke's Foundation and many local businesses and individuals.
