Blueberry Picking Day- Caregivers and their love ones sharing a good time
On July 30, 2013, twenty caregivers and care-receivers and one member from Sunshine Garden joined Family Caregiver Support Program to blueberry picking on a sunny day at Mercer Slough Blueberry Farm at Bellevue, WA. It was everyone’s first time to pick blueberries. Most of them picked more than one pound of it to bring home and share with their families and friends. After picking, we had lunch and played some fun games together. It was a good time for them to take a break from their regular caregiving duties. We all enjoyed the fun, friendship, and the fresh blueberries.
Family Caregiver Support Program is funded by Aging and Disability Services to provide comprehensive supports and services for unpaid caregivers who take care of their loved ones with illness or disability who are eighteen or above. Our goal is to support their caregiving journey as well as promote their physical and emotional health well-being. If you believe yourself or someone is a potential caregiver or care-receiver, and you would like to find out more about this program, please contact the program coordinator, Janice Kong, at 206-624-5633 ext. 4137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
