Alzheimer's Day Services offers a program that is both critical to Caregiver respite and is unparrelled in offering the participant a safe place to enjoy actvities and peer socialization. From baking cookies to studying current events, from exercise to gardening, the participants are always happy and busy! When yoiu visit the center, Dorothy's Place, you find an attitude of caring and compassion. Always focused on helping participants maintain integrity, many are called volunteers and some even believe that they are on staff. And the staff respects and embraces this concept! No where are Caregivers more welcomed and honored. From support groups to Caregivers Holiday Luncheons and seasonal cookouts, the family of participants are loved and cared for, just as participants are. Truly a family environment, the energy here is all positive. Indeed, an organization worthy of an award!!!
