Alzheimer Society of Brant, Haldimand Norfolk, Hamilton Halton -$4,000 (Larger Grant)
A Time for You: Caregiver Wellness Day
The Alzheimer Society leverages its own and community resources to deliver health promotion, advocacy and support services to people with dementia, those at greatest risk of developing dementia and their carers. This grant will support a one-day retreat for caregivers of persons living with dementia to recharge their “batteries” so that they can continue to provide the support they do each and every day.
The purpose of this retreat is to provide caregivers a day long respite break from their daily caregiving routines. The activities of the day will be focused of providing relaxation, stress reduction activities and motivational activities for the caregivers. Specifically, this grant will cover the costs of the respite for the persons living with dementia while the caregivers are at the retreat.
