Slip into the Shoes of a Caregiver at One-Night-Only Event

By Renee Nordstrand on September 6, 2017

Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital caregiver event

It’s tough being a caregiver.

In 2015, approximately 43.5 million Americans provided unpaid care to someone they knew. The value of the services they gave? An estimated $470 billion dollars.

Though there are professional (formal) caregivers who are paid for what they do, most caregivers are informal caregivers—that is, they’re unpaid individuals who assist others with activities of daily living or medical conditions.

On September 25th, Renée J. Nordstrand and her fellow board members of the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation invite you to attend an educational event focused on caregiving. The event will be held at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara at 5:30 p.m.

The philanthropic group Omicron Alpha P is composed of 31 members who wrote and began operating from their own bylaws in 2013.  This group has recently been adopted by the national fraternity Lambda Chi Alpha and approved by the Chico State IFC Board to be a new part of Greek life on campus at Chico State University.

The new Lambda Chi Alpha chapter is composed of a group of innovative young men who wish to better college life by improving the campus, as well as the Chico community.  In the last six months they have conducted two large park cleanups, three homeless shelter feedings, and one fundraiser to fight cancer.  This adds up to roughly 500 combined hours of community service and 350 meals served.
