C.A.R.E.S. provides an opportunity for caregivers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to connect with others from the community who are facing the same experiences and challenges. Each session will host a guest speaker followed by a chance for networking and fellowship over light refreshments. Speakers will cover a range of topics and provide valuable information to caregivers.

All meetings will be held at The Markiewicz Center located on OE's Lake Eliza Property at 40 S. Fish Lake Road in Valparaiso. For more information, please contact OE’s Senior Director of Respite Operations Walter Lenckos by email at or by telephone at (219) 464-9621 extension 443.
