Everyone who cares for someone with Alzheimer’s 24/7, will tell you, they need a break in their week. The truth is it is also good for the Alzheimer’s person as well. Most people with Alzheimer’s do not like changes because it can confuse them. The Caregivers knows this, and attempts to be independent to carry the load. But everyone gets a better attitude with a little break.
The Fair Park Senior Center knows about the concerns and issues concerning seniors. The New Horizon Adult Day Care has been a part of the center since 1996, providing a needed service to the seniors in Cumberland County. The Director, Carolyn Barnes, makes sure they are lovingly cared for with her staff in a home environment. The family member will feel comfortable receiving companionship, and social conversation with kindness. They can enjoy the time playing games, working puzzles, watching TV or taking a short walk or nap. Their snacks and lunch are provided. This service is now available 9:00-3:00 Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The program has recently become more affordable, at little or no cost to those who qualify. You can learn more about this program for someone you love, by calling Carolyn Barnes at 484-7416.
