Visting a Caregiver Center

Legislator Stephanie Bontempi, R-18th, recently visited the Reichert
Family Caregiver Center  in the main lobby of Huntington Hospital.

“During my visit to Huntington Hospital to see my mother-in-law, I discovered an invaluable resource that I believe would be helpful for those who are taking care of their loved ones. The Reichert Family Caregiver Center is a hidden gem that I am glad to have found and would highly recommend.”  Bontempi said.

The center provides free support and resources to family caregivers of in-hospital patients, those receiving outpatient care, and community members who are in a caregiving role including those caring for individuals with dementia, alzheimer’s, COVID Long Haulers, and COVID bereavement.
