Caregivers for those with dementia will once again take respite as the YMCA of the Foothills, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital and Alzheimer’s Los Angeles team up to host their monthly “Caregiver’s Night O” event at the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA today, May 5.
The event, sponsored by Home Instead, will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Caregivers will enjoy a Cinco de Mayo celebration with food, refreshments and music as well as the ability to talk with others about their experiences/challenges and get tips on how to take care of themselves.
Their person with dementia will be on-site in a separate area, participating in a variety of activities such as art, music and pingpong with trained staff and volunteers. Space is limited to 12 registrants.
The Crescenta-Cañada YMCA is located at 1930 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge.
