"Meet and Move" - A walking buddy program just for caregivers. Take a stroll with someone who has walked in your shoes.
You're invited to join Meet and Move, an exiting 12-week "walk and talk" program designed for family caregivers* in Mountain View, Los Altos, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto and surrounding communities!

- Join for free and schedule walks at your convenience
- Meet walking buddies who can relate to the challenges and rewards of caregiving
- Set realistic fitness goals and monitor your progress
- Improve your health and wellness, increase your energy and feel better physically and emotionally
- Receive $25 gift cards (up to $100) to spend as you please
Gentle strolls and speed walks accommodated. Schedule your own time and place.

* Some people don't think of themselves as caregivers because caring for a loved one seems like second nature or a family duty. However, you are a family caregiver if you provide unpaid care to an ill, frail, or disabled family member or friend by: assisting wtih areas of personal care that he/she can no longer manage, providing transportation and assistance, helping with family activities and maintaining the household, participating in medical/nursing care at home, providing emotional support and companionship, organizing home care, and/or governing finances.
