The Senior Connection is a program for seniors and their families. There is an “adopt a senior” program that connects volunteers with seniors that need a little extra help. This can provide a break for the caregiver and a social engagement for the care recipient. For more information, visit the Senior Connection website.
Another resource is the DayBreak Center in Sandpoint, Idaho. They provide a similar program, designed for caregivers to take a break. This program is specifically for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.
