A few months back Erin McLeod, Senior VP for the Friendship Centers, invited me to join her on "Thriving on the Suncoast".
I found the recording of the episode on YourTube recently and then learned that's it being run again this coming Sunday, March 22.
It was an honor to be there and be able to talk about a group of people near and dear to my heart, the Friendship Centers. If you're not familiar with the Friendship Centers, this is a great introduction. Erin talks about so many different aspects of the Centers' role in the community, especially with support for caregivers.
My own personal experience with the Caregiver Support Group, which in Sarasota meets on Thursday mornings, was life-changing for both me and my Dad. There are no words to describe the support we received from this very special group of caring individuals, both from the staff and the members of the support group itself.
Erin does a wonderful job of introducing you to the Friendship Centers. If you'd like more information the website is just a click away.
