WALLA WALLA, Wash. — Representatives from the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s Caregiver Support Program will visit three area clinics.

Held in conjunction with National Family Caregiver’s Month, the events will include an opportunity for people to ask questions. The gatherings are:

•Monday, Nov. 18 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Richland VA Clinic Lobby, 825 Jadwin Ave., Suite 250.

Caregivers are an important part of the veteran’s care team, said public affairs officer Linda Wondra in a written statement. This year’s theme is #BeCareCurious and encourages family caregivers to ask questions, explore options and share in decisions that affect the health and well-being of their loved ones.
