A grandparent/caregiver support group meets at 6:30 p.m., on the fourth Monday of the month (in January, that’s Jan. 28) at the Fayette County Extension Office, 1140 Harry Sykes Way, Lexington.

The group is designed for grandparents and caregivers who are raising children of relatives.

The monthly support meetings will enable you to:

* Learn about resources available to you
* Meet others in similar situations
* Receive assistance in gaining access to services
* Provide caregivers training for this type of “new” parenting.

The meeting is open to citizens of Fayette County as well as surrounding counties. For more information or to RSVP to attend, call Diana Dogget at 859-257-5582

And go ahead and mark your calendar for the 2019 Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Conference on March 21 at the Clarion Hotel, 1950 Newtown Pike, Lexington.

All grandparents, relatives, kinship caregivers and professionals are invited to attend the 17th annual conference.

Keynote speaker is Dr. Clarissa Belle, a licensed psychologist with a passion for assisting youth, families and child-serving systems in coping with psychological trauma.
