Caregivers for those with dementia are offered a ‘day off’

Those responsible for caring for a loved one with a condition like dementia are invited to enjoy a relaxing event to hopefully lighten their load.

Caregivers Day Off is hosted by the Gesher Human Services nonprofit and is designed to be a relaxing, enjoyable, and supportive event for metro Detroiters responsible for the care of loved ones.

The event is being offered on Sunday, Dec. 3 by the Dorothy and Peter Brown Jewish Community Adult Day Program at its West Bloomfield location. Adults living with dementia will be dropped off at the Brown Program, located at 6720 W. Maple Road in West Bloomfield, at 10 a.m. and caregivers will then walk across to the Lillian and Samuel Hechtman Senior Apartments, located at 6700 W. Maple Road, for the day’s activities which begin at 10.30 a.m. and finish at 3 p.m.
