Adult Respite Care Program at "The Club"

Are you caring for a loved one and starting to feel stressed, run down, and alone? If the answer is yes, then think about adult respite care at The Club, an economical fee based program for individuals experiencing mild cognitive impairment.  

Two days per week, The Club offers supervised activities and companionship in a caring, home-like setting.  A vibrant "adult center", it offers stimulating programs, engaging activities, and safe exercise classes.  Club members also have opportunities to socialize, reminisce, and enjoy lunch together. These are just some of the benefits of Club membership.

So, if you feel you need a break, call The Center at 508-359-3665 and inquire about The Club and availability.

Caregiver Workshop: Being good to yourself while caring for someone else

Join the COA staff and guest presenter Peggy Wihtol, on Thursday, December 10 at 3pm via Zoom for a workshop that will give you permission to be “good to yourself”. The initial focus will begin on the Caregiver Bill of Rights, which you will receive via email. Care giving is hard work and can be all consuming. Peggy has hands on experience with care giving and has the tips and resources to help you take care of yourself while being a dedicated care giver. Areas that Peggy will focus on: 

  • 5 minute breaks 
  • Creating a "me" spot in your home 
  • Trying to accept rather than argue or change 
  • Looking for and recognizing the positive 
  • Sharing the load

Please call the Center at 508-359-3665 to sign up for this helpful presentation with phone number and email. The COA staff is always available to help with any questions or concerns about care giving. We are a phone call away.
