IN-HOME & INSTITUTIONAL RESPITE GRANTS AVAILABLE

We refer to a short period of rest or relief as respite. So respite care means professional care for your loved one so that you can have a much needed and well-deserved break.

AAA Institutional Respite Care Grants: Means your loved one can stay in a safe, collaborative, medical facility for up to three days.  These grants are funded by Area Agency on Aging.

AAA In-Home Respite Care Grants: Means your loved one can have in-home services such as meal preparation, light housework, and assistance with activities for daily living such as bathing.  We will submit a client referral to Area Agency on Agency for you.  These grants are funded by Area Agency on Aging.

ETAA In-Home Respite Care Grants: Means your loved one can have up to 20 hours total to provide in-home services such as meal preparation, light housework, and assistance with activities for daily living such as bathing while you are trying to figure out a long-term plan.  These grants are solely funded by ETAA.

GivingTuesday – November 28

GivingTuesday emphasizes opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while still practicing physical distancing.  

  • GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

  • GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. 

  • People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday⁠⁠—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes—everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.

 

HOPE + HELP DAY CLUB:

  • Our Hope + Help Day Club meets each Thursday, 10AM-2PM, at Mobberly Baptist Church at The Bridge.  Church membership is not required to attend.  All are welcome.
  • The Hope + Help Day Club is in full swing with light breakfast snacks, a full lunch, social activities, crafts, low-key exercise, games, and entertainment, presented with music, hugs, and laughter.  Each week has a theme and participants have a purpose.  Our Thursdays bring you Hope + Help with your journey!
  • Our main focus is to provide a safe, loving environment for individuals with memory loss so that their caregivers have much-needed time for themselves.  We provide one-on-one support from professionals and experienced volunteers.
  • Contact our Day Club Director, Sally Hendricks, at 903-746-4698 for more information on attending or volunteering.  We are here to help!
