A meeting this week tries to help people caring for elderly relatives, especially to enjoy the holiday season. Bonnie Boshart leads the Caregiver Support Group, and she says that the holidays can be stressful for already-busy caregivers that also are trying to help to host visiting relatives among other duties. She says that the group meets regularly and has minimal structure to the meetings besides the general topics; it’s led mostly by the people who attend.

Again, the meeting Thursday is at 2 p.m. at Halcyon House in Washington.
