Respite Care for Memory-Impaired Seniors



One of the more challenging things in life is to provide 24-hour care for a loved one with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. Sometimes is is a son or daughter caring for a parent, but often it is a spouse fulfiling the vows, "in sickness and in health". No matter who is providing the care, it seems to be overwhelming and never-ending. 

For these caregivers we seek to provide some small weekly relief, a little break, a peaceful respite, and a place of grace.

For more information please contact the church office at 518-622-3286.

Grace Place 1

What is Grace Place?

Grace Place is designed to meet the social and emotional needs of older adults and their caregivers. It provides activities and socialization opportunities outside the home in a safe and caring setting for older adults with mild to moderate memory loss and/or medical impairments. It provides their caregivers with emotional support, information regarding available resources, and personal time away during the day, in which to rest and address their own needs. 

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is providing relief for family caregivers to get a break, while their loved one experiences positive programs.

Who Qualifies?

Those diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and other medical disorders are eligible. To qualify participants must be able to ambulate independently, be self-sufficient in the bathroom, and be medically stable.

Grace Place 2

How Does it Work?

On Wednesday's, from 10am-2pm, the caregiver brings their loved one to the church. During this time, we have fun programming planned such as music, arts and crafts, faith building devotion, body movement, bag lunch, and other appropriate activities. This provides the caregiver with four hours to go to the doctor, go out to lunch, go shopping, go home and take a nap or anything else they want—they have 4 hours all to themselves!
