That’s Entertainment!

Day Away is fortunate to have local artists, poets, and musicians visit frequently to entertain our participants.  Recently local musician, Bette Libby was our guest.For many years, Bette taught classroom music in the Newfound Elementary Schools (1975-78, 1982-2008). Since retirement  from full-time teaching in 2008, she has had time for leading senior sing-alongs, providing church music, and teaching piano lessons.

If you would like to share your talent(s) with our program we would love to have you! Contact Fran Olson under our contact tab.

About Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or Dementia

Respite for Family/Caregivers Day Away is a great way for caregivers to take a break. Day Away is designed to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for our participants to help maintain their independence, encourage socialization, be mentally stimulated and remain active. We want to lighten your load. Trained volunteers and an RN director are here to provide 1-1 supervision for your loved one. The day passes quickly and is filled with failure-free activities and much joy for both the participants and volunteers. Day Away is nondenominational and open to all families and caregivers who feel the need for respite and relief from constant care and responsibility.
