Westfield Respite Care Program is a one-on-one care program for individuals with Dementia & early stages of Alzheimer’s & their CAREGIVERS!
The Westfield Respite Care Program, held at First United Methodist Church in Westfield, is intended to provide individuals suffering with Dementia and early stages of Alzheimer’s an opportunity to partake in a social, supportive, and secure environment while giving Caregivers the temporary relief they need.
It is vital for Caregivers to maintain an adequate level of self-care and our respite program will allow them time to take a break from their daily care giving roles.
Respite care providers are trained by the Western New York Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to understand the unique challenges and rewards of working with those with dementia.
Our FREE monthly program includes a homemade lunch, therapy pets, games, crafts, simple exercises, fun loving volunteers & plenty of laughter and music.
The Westfield Respite Care Program is offered on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 10:00 to 2:00 at the Westfield First United Methodist Church, 101 East Main Street.
If you are interested in the program or know someone for whom the WESTFIELD program may be helpful please call or email for more information.
