As part of National Home Care month, parties were thrown across San Diego County at various CVS stores and 8 family and unpaid caregivers were awarded a combined $4000.
At Home Care Solution helped to organize the party at the Encinitas CVS, where Christy Stevenson of Charisma by Christy donated her skills as a make up artist to give five minute make-overs.
Diana Harvey of Healing Hands donated chair massages, which led to big smiles and relaxed shoulders.
Denise Callas, Nursing Supervisor for At Home Care Solution, gave free blood pressure screenings.
It was a fun afternoon that gave a much needed break to men and women who typically give care and rarely get care for themselves.
The person recognized at the Encinitas party was Linda, a mother of four who is caring for her parents with chronic illness. She was given a $500 prize and said, “Having just lost my car, everyday is a challenge, this money is so unexpected, thank you all.”
At Home Care Solution would like to thank CVS, Lorian Home Health, Christy Stevenson and Diana Harvey for donating their time and expertise to this worthwhile event.
