Respite Care Charleston provides a social day program on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 AM until 1:50 PM for individuals and families coping with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. Loved ones attending this wonderful program get special attention, exercise, and mental stimulation through games, socialization, and crafts. Additionally, art, music, and pet therapy are provided by professional staff and trained volunteers who know and understand the special needs of those with Alzheimer’s disease. Caregivers get a much needed break from the stress of the constant on call status for a few hours.
Holy Spirit opened its doors to this group in May of 2017. Members of the community and the congregation serve as volunteers.
