Caregiving & Support

Being a caregiver for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia, is difficult at best. Being in a supportive space with ohter in the same situation eases feelings of isolation, and on Fridays you sing and dance. That is the beauty of Senior Retreat, a signature program of the YMCA of Austin that provides a space of joy, connection and respite for caregivers and their affected family members. This volunteer-led program provided resources and community for more than 40 families last year.
