Gathering Place

CarePartners continues to monitor the rapidly changing developments regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) virus and during this stay-at-home order we are not offering in person Gathering Place programs until August 31st.

We at CarePartners know how hard it can be for family caregivers and their loved ones to not be able to attend their favorite Gathering Place program. So we are providing an entire In-Home Gathering Place Guide that you can view or print from home to help keep your loved ones and yourself engaged and entertained. Please note the In-Home Gathering Place Guide will be updated weekly.

CareParners is also providing an Online Activities Calendar filled with fun crafts and stay-at-home activities for you and your loved one. It also has information on resources and online live events from CarePartners. The Online Activities Calendar will be updated weekly.

Family caregivers caring for loved ones with memory loss, specifically mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, other dementias or cognitive impairment can participate in this 3 to 3.5-hour program.  Caregivers receive respite, a break from caregiving responsibilities, while their loved ones participate in planned activities such as games, music, arts, crafts, lunch and socialization.

Cost:  FREE

Registration: Required

This monthly program is held in partnership with congregations and nonprofits who provide space and volunteers who are trained by CarePartners to participate on a Care Team®.  These Care Team volunteers provide companionship and fun for individuals living with memory loss.

A registration intake is conducted by CarePartners staff to determine eligibility and welcome new participants to this program. Caregivers and their loved ones can participate in as many Gathering Place programs as needed each month.
