Pleasantries Adult Day and Consulting Services and the Sudbury Senior Center will offer the next session of “The Caring Café” on Friday, June 3, from 9-11 a.m. in Sudbury.
The Caring Café is held the first Friday of each month at the Sudbury Senior Center (40 Fairbank Road, Sudbury, MA). It is facilitated by Information & Referral Specialist Anne Manning, LMHC, and Pleasantries Owner and Director Tammy Pozerycki, CADDCT, CDP, and co-sponsored by Traditions of Wayland and Right at Home. Please RSVP by calling 978-443-3055.
These Cafés offer an opportunity for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementia a chance to get some needed relief while still spending time with your loved one and other caregivers in a relaxed and welcoming setting. The Cafés encourage 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 morning or afternoon.
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.
Pozerycki also hosts The Create A Better Day Café on the fourth Sunday of each month at Pleasantries Adult Day and Consulting Services (195 Reservoir Street, Marlborough, MA). The next session for that Cafe is Sunday, May 22 from 1-3 p.m. For more information, please call Tammy at 508-481-0809 or email email@example.com.
