Respite care is a ministry to both seniors and their caretakers. It allows seniors to spend time and enjoy companionship with other people besides their usual caregiver while providing caregivers free time to take care of other responsibilities and enjoy mental breaks.
Our hours of operation are on Thursdays from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.
Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
Care is available both weekly or on occasion. All requests for care must be registered in advance. We cannot accept any unregistered visitors. This allows us to plan activities, food, and the necesssary number of volunteers needed. Full sessions of care cost $5/session to help offset the cost of lunch, snacks, and activity supplies.
Seniors with disabilities are welcome as long as medical assistance or personal care (such as toileting) is not required.
If you are a caregiver and need a break, we're here to provide that much-needed time off. If you have been looking for a way to serve and have a love for people, please consider becoming a volunteer.
