Care Partners of Cook County offers two groups to assist caregivers and their loved ones.
Note: these programs have a different schedule in November and December to accomodate holiday schedules. Please contact Care Partners for details.
The Group Respite Program is held twice a month to offer a safe and enjoyable social setting for seniors with early memory loss or other long-term illness. Caregivers will have three hours of independent time, while their loved ones are supervised by trained volunteers. It is held the second Wednesday and fourth Friday of the month from 11 am to 2 pm, in the lower level of the First Congregational UCC in Grand Marais. The Group Respite Program on the second Wednesday begins at the same time as the Caregiver Support Group, to give caregivers freedom to join the group and have additional free time. Participants must preregister with Jeannette at 387-3787.
The Caregiver Support Group meets every second Wednesday of the month, from 11 am to 12:30 pm, in the Fireside Room of the First Congregational Church. Vicky Biggs and Tyler Howell are the group facilitators. More information is available from Care Partners at 387-3788, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Vicki Biggs at 387-1913 or email@example.com.
