We invited medical professionals, city and county elected officials, social service organizations, church pastors, volunteers, and potential participants and their caregivers to visit our new respite center on September 12th from 10-12 and again from 6-8.
We met some new friends who we hope will want to spend some time with us beginning on October 3rd. Respite care will be available every Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. It will include healthy snacks and drinks as well as a nutritional lunch.
A variety of activities will be available–crafts, games, music, art, modified exercise (such as chair yoga and stretching), and other activities to keep our participants busy and happy.
After lunch, participants can rest in our comfortable chairs, take a nap, watch a movie, or be read to by one of our volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering or have a loved one with memory loss for whom this program would be appropriate, please contact us at 715-293-2561.
