If you are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other related Dementia, your days can be very long. The Day Away Program allows you one day a week to catch up and allows a Day Away for your loved one. Our participants have a wonderful time at Day Away. It is a day out of the house for fun and to socialize. At Day Away, participants make friends, enjoy crafts, lunch, games, light exercise, visits from local musicians, poets, and therapy dogs along with walks outside and picnics if the weather allows. You may know someone who would benefit from our program. We encourage you to make a visit. Our participants look forward to their Thursdays and you will too. Staffing is comprised of trained volunteers and a Registered Nurse. Day Away is held Thursdays in Simard Hall at Our Lady of Grace Chapel in Bristol, NH from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
