LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Konocti Women’s Service Club, or KWSC, supports local schools, charitable organizations and Lake County families in need.

One hundred percent of the monies raised are used to help children who are at risk or in-need in Lake County.

The club’s largest fundraiser this year will be an enjoyable and exciting “luau.” It will take place at Konocti Harbor Resort in Kelseyville on Sunday, June 2, from 5 to 9 p.m.

Tickets are $100 each for this event and are on sale through Eventbrite.com.

They are seeking donations from merchants and others in the community to help fill beautiful baskets, awesome silent and live auction items or sponsor tables.

When there is a need, the club makes it a reality.

KWSC’s motto is “For Kid’s Sake.” The children of today are our tomorrow’s future. Please help the group help them.

The club invites the community to join them at the newly renovated pool area at Konocti Harbor Resort for the luau on June 2.

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The E Center Women, Infants and Children Program has released its April appointment scheduling notice.

The nationwide, federally sponsored WIC nutrition program provides nutrition education, support and help with breastfeeding, community and healthcare referrals, and supplemental food benefits to eligible pregnant women, new moms, postpartum women, infants, and children under the age of five.

WIC encourages enrollment of migrants and eligible women in the early months of pregnancy. Single fathers, foster parents and guardians of children under age five are also eligible to enroll their children.

The food packages include fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheese, milk, cereal, juice, whole grains, and beans or peanut butter, infant cereal, infant fruits and vegetables, and formula supplementation is available for infants.

WIC has generous income guidelines. For example, a family of four can have a yearly gross income of $55,500 or monthly income of up to $4,625 and still be eligible for the health benefits of the WIC program.

To enroll in the WIC program, schedule appointments, or for more information, call 707-263-5253 or 707-994-1151. WIC’s fax numbers are 707-263-4183 or 707-994-1152.

LAKEPORT, Calif. — Hospice Services of Lake County and the Redwood Caregivers Resource Center will present a free two-part workshop designed to help individuals caring for a loved one with dementia, Alzheimer’s or other neurocognitive disorder.

The "Power of Caregiving" workshop is slated for Saturdays, April 20 and 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 1862 Parallel Drive.

Lunch and snacks will be provided for participants, and arrangements for respite care may be available with advance notice.

The presenting agencies recognize that caring for a loved one or client with dementia, Alzheimer’s or other neurocognitive disorder can forever change the lives of families and caregivers.

There can be devastating effects on those providing long-term care, from financial pressures and legal quandaries to health problems and emotional turmoil.

The workshop is intended to provide a supportive, educational opportunity to help participants increase peace of mind and understanding of caregiving and to feel less isolated and stressed by providing awareness of resources and widening their support systems.

In this two-part series, individuals who care for persons with dementia and other neurocognitive disorders will be given tools to increase their abilities to understand the challenging dementia-related behaviors.

The tools will also aid the caregivers in efforts to communicate and remain “connected” with the family members and to understand common causes for family members’ resistance to allowing caregivers to provide personal care.

Workshop instructor Alexis Glidewell, LCSW, will help participants explore feelings of denial and guilt and will offer tools for handling frustration that may occur for the full-time caregiver. She will offer suggestions for self-care activities and encourage participants to share their own successful tools for maintaining energy and compassion while providing care for a loved one or special client.

Glidewell, a member of the Geriatric Medicine Clinic in Santa Rosa, is associated with the Redwood Caregivers Resource Center, sharing her expertise in teaching classes and facilitating workshops and support groups.
