Ontario OH - The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging, Inc. in collaboration with Richland Academy of Arts will host a Caregiver Appreciation Event on November 18, 2022 at the Richland Academy of Arts, located at 75 N Walnut St, Mansfield, OH. The day will be dedicated to individuals who provide care for someone aged 60 and older.
