PLYMOUTH — On Thursday, November 7, Holy Trinity Parish is scheduled to begin a Day Away Program for caregivers of adults with Alzheimer's disease or Dementia.
Day Away is a social respite program held once a week from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Our Lady of Grace Chapel in Bristol. Day Away will provide short-term temporary relief to those who are caring for family members.
Even though family members/caregivers receive great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. Day Away is designed to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for participants to help maintain their independence, encourage socialization, be mentally stimulated and remain active. Trained volunteers and an RN are on-site to provide 1-1 supervision for the participant. A nominal fee of $25 includes lunch. Eligible participants must be able to ambulate with a cane or walker, or walk without assistance, participate in a social setting, use the bathroom without assistance, have the ability to self administer medication and live at home with their caregivers.
As well as lunch, participants will have the opportunity to gather with a volunteer companion for coffee and discuss with them their life and interests. There will also be time for an adult worthy craft, light exercise, and ballroom dancing. After lunch, time is allotted for the
participants to play Bingo and other low impact games. The day will end with a social gathering and light refreshments.
