CLEARWATER - Are you caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer's Disease or a related disorder? Would you like a weekly break from your 24-hour-a-day caregiving responsibilities?
A new program will bring the expertise of Menorah Manor to the convenient, caring locale of The Golda Meir/Kent Jewish Center for a short-term respite care.
For the person with Alzheimer's disease, the program will offer group recreational activities including mental stimulation programs, socialization, exercise, music and intergenerational programming. There will also be a morning snack and a hot, kosher nutritious lunch.
For the caregivers, the program will provide a twice-a-month Caregiver Support Group and a hot kosher lunch. More importantly, it will provide time for the caregivers to relax, run errands, or use the full services of the Golda/Meir/Kent Jewish Center to exercise and socialize.
The program, which is collaboration between the Golda Meir/Kent Jewish Center and Menorah Manor, is scheduled to begin in early 2007 and to operate one half-day a week from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This program is open to the general public. Membership in the Center is not required. Early advance registration is needed to reserve placement. To learn more or enroll, contact Jeanette Brownstein, MSW at 27-302-3737.
