Sorry, Stan, that I haven't replied until now. I have been with my mother and serving as a caregiver. She's 95 and still lives at home. I go and clean, cook (I haven't done her in yet), and do other tasks.
Terrific Tuesdays is a group that assists those with Alzheimer's and provides a respite for their caregivers and an opportunity for the individuals to engage in activities that let them be involved jn various activities. It is a wonderful experience for all.
The Dinner Bell provides a meal (every Wednesday) for those who are in want of a decent, home cooked meal. The workers do all the planning, preparation, serving, and clean-up. Some come in early at 7 and stay until after 1. Others come in different times to do various tasks and sometimes leave before the serving.There are a few who work every week; while others work one or two weeks per month. It is a wonderful program, I highly recommend it to others.
Both of these programs are held at First United Methodist Church. Both are wonderful things that have come into my life. They are back to back and by Wed. afternoon, I am ready for the recliner.
