At Your Home Familycare proudly supports the Southern Caregiver Resource Center, including sponsorship of SCRC’s “Heroes In Heels” fundraising event on May 14. AYHF contributed a gift basket as a raffle prize. Steven Schweitzer, At Your Home Familycare Client Care Manager, was on hand to represent President Laurie Edwards-Tate & AYHF at the event.

Event hostess Vicki Nenner received support from SCRC when her husband Paul was diagnosed with cancer, resulting in his early death in 2007.  Vicki has never forgotten what SCRC did for her while she coped with her husband’s end of life  issues.  She continues to be a staunch, enthusiastic and dedicated supporter of the SCRC.

The event’s distinguished guest speaker was Dolores Gallagher-Thompson, Ph.D., ABPP, Director of the Stanford Geriatric Education Center and Professor of Research, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine.  Dr. Gallagher-Thompson is a Certified Cognitive Therapist and Specialist in Geropsychology.

Larry Thompson, husband of Dr. Gallagher-Thompson and raffle winner of the beautiful At Your Home Familycare gift basket, decided to auction off the basket in order to raise even more funds for the Southern Caregiver Resource Center. His efforts, coupled with the guests' contagious enthusiasm, resulted in an additional $225 being raised. Not only was this very entertaining, but also very much appreciated by the SCRC.
