The program operates Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10-2 in an inviting, homelike, free standing building at 1021 Third Avenue. The staff and trained volunteers design a day filled with activities including exercise, music, active games, crafts, devotion time, and lunch.
Respite Care is open to anyone in the community. Caregivers must call and schedule a time for an assessment visit.
The St Luke Respite Care Ministry is a wonderful way for St Luke members to volunteer.
