Caregiver Connection’s September meeting features a guest presenter to discuss caregiver respite benefit programs.

The meeting is on Monday, September 13, from 12 PM – 1:30 PM online via Zoom. Sign up today online. The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants closer to the meeting.

Dana Davidson of the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living will begin the meeting with a presentation about caregiver support benefits in Kentucky, including those that provide respite benefits. Mrs. Davidson will share qualifying criteria, explain the details of the benefits, and talk through the assessment and application process.

After Mrs. Davidson’s presentation, we will continue with our usual networking and discussion.

Caregiver Connection is a monthly meeting that allows family caregivers to gather for networking and an opportunity to share tips, challenges, frustrations, joys, resources, and more. Any family caregiver is welcome, whether caring for a loved one once a week, on a live-in basis, or anything in between.

There is no cost to attend, but sign-up is required. Sign-up can be completed online, by phone to 859-986-1500, or by email to

Caregiver Connection is sponsored and hosted by Hospice Care Plus. It is primarily intended for caregivers whose loved ones are not yet appropriate for hospice care.

Update: Mrs. Davidson was kind enough to allow us to share her presentation file as well as a brochure for the State Health Insurance Program.
