TLC@TOL Respite Care Ministry
TLC at TOL is a free monthly Respite Care Program for caregivers looking after loved ones with any form of dementia or Alzheimer’s. The four-hour program gives caregivers time to take care of home-related tasks, keep appointments, or have time to themselves. On the first Wednesday of the month, caregivers may bring their loved ones to the church where they will be partnered one-on-one with a volunteer. Volunteers have completed the Alzheimer’s Association Respite Care Training Program. Guests will share in social interaction, participate in a variety of activities, make a craft, play a game, enjoy time spent with therapy dogs, and finish the day with music. They will have a snack when they arrive and also eat a nutritious lunch.
The program is held on the first Wednesday of each month, from 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM. For more information, please contact Co-coordinators Paulette Hotchkiss or Jan Sherman through the church office at 836-4868.
