An informative and touching “Lunch ‘N Learn” presentation Saturday, Jan. 8 provided vital facts about “Caring for Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s and Dementia” to about 20 people.

Sara Edwards of Let’s Live Local and Shelia Clark of the California Family Counseling Network offered a full program with valuable film clips and handouts to inform families about caring for loved ones at home.

Ginger Martin and her talented daughters offered a heartwarming slide show and performed a song about the value of caring for those who have cared for us. Dr. Fred Lindberg, M.D. spoke about about his house call service.

The event was hosted by the new Pine Mountain Mercantile, a restaurant and to-go kitchen which also sells practical mountain merchandise.
