New!
The Rumble & the Respite

Friday, February 11
10 am–2 pm
FC Center

Are you a caregiver providing your spouse or other loved one with activities of daily living? This new program is designed to add fun and comradery to the lives of residents who need assistance with activities of daily living, while also giving you the opportunity to take a break from your daily responsibilities. We describe caregiver as an unpaid family member, most often a spouse, who provides direct care for activities of daily living for a loved one.

The Rumble & the Respite will be a safe and enjoyable space filled with activities including lunch. As a caregiver, you’ll have some time to do something for yourself. For more information and to register, contact Karen Metzguer at
919-542-5877 or send her an email.
