Burchcreek Home Care to offer caregiver help

Article Date: 
2 December, 2011 (All day)

 

As wonderful as the holidays are, they can be a stressful time, especially if you are a caregiver.  We are here to help!  Danny and Jennie Fry, owners of Burchcreek Homecare and Hospice, would like to thank the community for their support by extending their free respite service to the town of Morgan. 

Burchcreek Homecare and Hospice has collaborated with the Alzheimer’s Association, Utah Chapter and Weber Human Services Senior Companions program to offer caregivers a needed break while providing quality socialization and cognitive activities for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, regardless of the stage of the disease….at no cost. 

How does this work?  Simply bring your loved one to the senior center during specified times.  Allow enough time on the first visit to complete an assessment to enable us to modify the program to fit their specific needs and interests, at their level.  Activities may include but are not limited to, games and puzzles for brain exercise, crafts, discussion of current and past events, and reminiscing.

This program is open to the public.  We offer these services at 5 other locations in Ogden.  You may take advantage of this free service at any of the locations.  You may utilize our services at just one location or you may use them all.  Our goal is to help you keep your loved one living at home as long as possible while easing the burden on you.

Bring your loved one to the Morgan Senior Center, 50 West 100 North, on the 1st and 3rd Monday from 11:30 to 2:30 every month.  You can be assured that your loved one will be taken care of and have a great time so you can get the rest you need.
