National Family Caregivers Month
National Family Caregivers Month Adults

November is National Family Caregivers Month – a time to celebrate and support those who provide care to a loved one. Most adults prefer to age at home with a caregiver, and two out of every five adults are family caregivers. Caregiving affects the whole family, and providing for a loved one at home requires a unique set of skills and services. For additional caregiving information and community resources, contact Salt Lake County Aging Services: 385-468-3280 or visit

Little Bear's Tale For Elementary Ages

The bear has a lovely long tail that the fox is jealous of, so he thinks of a way to trick Mr. Bear out of his tail. "Just go put your tail in the lake," he says, "and you will catch all the crawdads you could ever want." So Mr. Bear sits with his tail in the lake, waiting and waiting for the crawdads to come. Something is certainly stinging his tail.
