The Door County Aging and Disability Resource Center and other local organizations are joining forces this Wednesday to put caregiving in the spotlight. The community conversation will feature an airing of the PBS documentary “Care!” as well as discuss the basics of caregiving including costs, demand, and available resources. ADRC Director Jake Erickson likens caregivers to superhumans with all the challenges they face and says it is important for them to be around individuals experiencing the same thing.
Caregivers are becoming increasingly more important in Door County as seniors are projected to make up half of the area’s population in the coming years according to Erickson. The community conversation on caregiving will take place at the ADRC’s Door County Community Center beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
