If you or someone you know is caring for an Alzheimer's patient, you may know that caregivers often find it difficult to do things such as . . .
♦ go out to lunch
♦ visit friends
♦ run their own errands
♦ have some time alone
Routine activities are especially hard on those who are confined to their home 24 hours a day, as they care for their loved one.
"The Gathering Place" can make an enormous difference to the caregiver's care partner through creative activities, loving care and a chance to meet new friends.
Alzheimer's Respite Care seeks to help both the caregiver and care partner. We provide the caregivers with some much needed rest while we give the care partners a time of fun and fellowship.
