Information and resources that support your role in caring for a loved one.
Need to speak to someone by phone about a caregiving issue? There are options to contact someone directly for help.
Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer`s or other dementia? Are you in need of some relief but also would still like to enjoy time with your loved one and other caregivers in a relaxed and welcoming setting.
The Create A Better Day Café offers just such an opportunity. Held at Pleasantries Adult Day and Consulting Services (195 Reservoir Street, Marlborough, MA), the Café encourages socialization with other caregivers and loved ones where you can just be yourself. It provides an opportunity to get out with your loved one and have an enjoyable afternoon.
Pleasantries owner and director Tammy Pozerycki describes the Café as “a time to step out of the daily routine, leave the disease at the door, and enjoy a positive experience in a supportive environment. The afternoon will consist of entertainment, conversation, music, arts, games, refreshments, and most importantly, laughter.”
There is no cost to participate in the program, which is open to anyone at any stage of the disease process who is accompanied by friends, family and loved ones.
The next session for the Café will be this Sunday, November 23 from 1-3 p.m. Tammy is quick to note that the Patriots game will be airing on a big screen TV so don’t let the lure of a big game dissuade you from taking advantage of a great opportunity for a day of needed respite and welcome enjoyment.
Call Tammy at 508-481-0809 for more information. Due to the possibility of cancellation due to inclement weather or illness, please call prior to attending and listen to voice message for any updates.
