Are you caring for a loved one?  Don’t miss this opportunity to develop a wealth of self-care tools! This class is designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves.  You have to “take care to give care.”

Learn to:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Prioritize self-care
  • Communicate Your needs
  • Deal with challenging situations
  • Make tough decisions
  • Set goals and problem solve
  • Manage emotions
  • Increase confidence.

Caregiver Handbook may be borrowed for the class or purchased for $20.

Legal Conversations

Every other Friday from 2 – 3:30.  Call 360-321-1600 ext. 0 for an appointment. 

By appointment only, Attorney Deborah Holbert will provide 20 – 30 minute sessions designed to respond to individual questions and concerns about specific legal matters – no charge/no commitment.  You are strongly encouraged to define your goal in specific terms to maximize the benefit of your session.  Briefly state the purpose of your visit, such as:

  • Planning of estates, wills, trusts
  • Contract and business matters
  • Health care directives and durable power of attorney
  • Probate and non-probate successions
  • Family law and other civil matters

Deborah does not handle criminal law so will be unable to assist in those matters

Coming in June
