Day Away participant Sheila Adams draws the winning raffle ticket assisted by Program Administrator Fran Olson as volunteers look on with the winning quilt.
Volunteers of Day Away spent many hours over the summer selling raffle tickets for a beautiful handmade quilt made with love by volunteer and Steering Committee member Nel Garden. The lucky winner of the quilt was Monica Hart of MA who has owned property on Newfound Lake for 47 years and spends much of the summer and fall at the lake. Thanks to all who purchased tickets. More than $2,000 was raised to assist with the programs needs and to assist a participant with their modest weekly fee. Congratulations Monica!!
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.
