“I called Helpers for my parents who live in Barnesville. A senior citizen myself, I found old-fashioned caring and mending a hand. My parents did too in the calls and visits they had from Helpers. It’s been a place to learn about available resources and needed information, as well as check out medical equipments and receive a ride to an appointment. The Matter of Balance class was informative with good exercices, coffee break and light hearted conversation. Thank you Helpers!
