Cruisin' for Caregivers Tour Stops

Posted on 06/24/24

Tour Dates and Locations
Iowa’s 330,000 unpaid family caregivers provide roughly $5 billion in unpaid labor each year, helping with everything including medications and medical care, meals, bathing and dressing, chores, finances, grocery shopping, transportation and much more. Caring for a loved one can be emotionally, physically, and financially draining. That's why we're crisscrossing Iowa to meet caregivers where they are to provide resources to make the process easier.

See below a list of stops for our statewide Cruisin' for Caregivers tour. Come visit us in the "AARV" where we'll be handing out caregiver resource guides and light refreshments. Additional stops and details will be added once confirmed.
