Caregiver Support Group

The Otsego County Commission on Aging normally sponsors a Caregiver Support Group meeting on the third Tuesday of every month. However, the agency has cancelled the March and April meetings to protect “the independence and well-being” of our clients and staff, and to support the overall safety and health protection of our community as we all take precautions against the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again.
Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the

shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.”
