Many family caregivers take on the challenges of caregiving alone. However, caring for a loved one is not easy. Not only can it be overwhelming, too much stress can be harmful to both of you. To help ease the burden of caregiving, we offer caregiver support groups, which provide caregivers the opportunity to share experiences with peers in similar circumstances, and our adult day care center, which provides options for both the caregiver and the participant.
As part of our mission to serve seniors and their families, we offer caregiver support groups in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. These groups are available to all caregivers regardless of the condition or illness of the person being cared for, including grandparents caring for/raising grandchildren or relatives caring for a disabled adult. Attendance is free and new members are always welcome.
The Retreat is a special place, and experience, that has been described as refreshing, supportive, fun, assuring, caring and heartwarming by those who participate and their families. It is a place that provides a positive change of environment that can be beneficial to participants and caregivers.
The Retreat offers a stimulating day experience for older adults with physical and cognitive impairments. Participants enjoy a full day of activities, social interaction and recreation in a safe, protective at-home like atmosphere. Family caregivers gain peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in a safe place while they go off to work or get much needed respite. To arrange a tour, give us a call at 850-266-2503.
