Looking for a volunteer opportunity? We need you! Memory Impairment Caregivers Need a Break one day per month (1st Wednesday of each month 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
Located at the Springville First United Methodist Church.
A hot lunch, snacks and beverages are provided.
Having fun is the job! The Springville Respite Care Program is looking for more volunteers. Not available every month? That’s fine! Come when you can. We offer a break to caregivers of people with memory issues such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. The caregivers are able to enjoy a few hours to take time for themselves while we give 1 on 1 care for our memory impaired guests by having fun. We enjoy a morning snack, play games, make crafts, eat lunch, have conversations, enjoy music, and just have a good time. We are in need of more people to be buddies to our guests and also people who would like to provide a lunch and morning snack. If you are interested in volunteering or are a caregiver and would like more information about the program, please give us a call! Contact Barb Blesy at 716-435-5400 for more information.
