Published DatePLYMOUTH — Holy Trinity Parish is planning a respite day care program targeted for adults in the early to mid- stages of Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.
The Day Away Program will be offered one day per week, Thursdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Simard Hall, Our Lady of Grace Chapel, 2 West Shore Rd. Bristol. This social, day care program will provide needed respite and relief from the constant care and responsibility for caregivers.
Participants will be offered compassionate friendship and supervision by a trained volunteer staff. This is not a medical program and there will be a modest fee. The program's success depends on finding a caring RN director and local volunteers.
