  • The Wellspring Caregiver Respite and Renew program is set to begin Wednesday, Oct. 31.
    It will take place at the St. James Community Building at the Senior Dining site every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    The cost for the service will be $20 plus the cost of the meal served by Senior Dining. Lunch is $3.50 for people 60 and older and $6.50 for those younger than 60.
    Under the direction of Wellspring staff, older adults with mild to moderate cognitive impairment or those who are socially isolated are cared for one-on-one by capable Wellspring volunteers.
    The program is offered in partnership with VINE Faith in Action who will be providing a licensed social worker to supervise the program and it will be coordinated by an experienced senior activity coordinator.
    Family caregivers may participate with their loved one or are welcome to use the time to run errands and take care of personal business.
