AARP holds special event for family caregivers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Taking care of people who take care of others.

That's what AARP did Saturday from nine until noon at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Free massages, yoga, and health screenings were offered to family caregivers.

They also had the chance to meet with professionals to learn more about Alzheimer's and PTSD.

"There are 640,000 caregivers in Kentucky alone and we know that care givers who don't take time to take care of themselves get burned out. So we want to encourage them to take that time to take care of themselves and come out and have a little fun with us," said Tihisha Rawlins.

The organization hopes to make the event an annual one.
