Description of project

Our Day Club respite program, Terrific Tuesdays & Thursdays, is an opportunity for caregivers to find balance. The program is designed to meet the needs of both the person with dementia and their caregiver. It is offered weekly on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm. A light breakfast and lunch are served, and the members are able to reminisce and socialize while participating in non-aerobic exercise and enjoying creative, purposeful activities that offer sensory stimulation. Caregivers are able to drop off their loved ones with our trained staff and volunteers and know that they are being taken care of in a safe environment. We do not charge a fee for Day Club but have a suggested donation of $40 a week. This amount does not cover the program costs, but it helps offset any associated costs. We typically host 25 members a week with 8-10 paying the suggested donation. http://www.alzalliance.org/how-we-help/need-break/terrific-tuesdays/
