Evelyn Erb, Social Work Manager, and John Everest, Bereavement Coordinator, were thrilled to chat with Olivia Belanger, Health Reporter at the Keene Sentinel, about support for caregivers as part of her coverage on the high rates of dementia in Cheshire County. The Sentinel hosted a Facebook Live question-and-answer session June 8 with John and Evelyn. Here’s a link to the transcript of their conversation.
