On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

The Family Caregivers Center of Mercy will hold an educational series on Transitioning Out of Caregiving.  After giving so much of yourself in the care of a loved one, transitioning out of the caregiver role can be challenging.  In order to support caregivers during this time, the Family Caregivers Center offers a 4-week education series focusing on the   spiritual, financial, and emotional aspects of re-establishing your identity.  Tammy Buseman, Mercy Chaplain, and Chris Carmen, Family Caregivers Center volunteer, will facilitate discussion.

Registration is required by Jan. 27th.  To register or to request caregiving assistance at the while attending this event, please let us know 48 hours in advance by calling (319) 221-8866 or emailing fcgc@mercycare.org.  For caregivers: 18+
