Caregiving & Support
Collaborative programs intended to bring support and resources to families that are caring for an older loved one. See below for our Caregiving and Support Program Offerings.
Open to persons with early- to mid-stage Alzheimer’s and dementia, this once-a-week respite program is currently offered by the TownLake YMCA. Geared toward relatively active individuals, the YMCA Senior Retreat enables participants to enjoy aquatic fitness, dancing, crafts, restorative yoga, spinning, strengthening and stretching and more. Music is also incorporated into every “retreat” as well, be it a musical guest or just an informal sing-a-long.
The TownLake Senior Retreat meets every Friday from 11am-2pm. The fee is $10 per Friday, which includes lunch. YMCA membership is not required. During this time the caregivers will be able to run errands, exercise, meet with other caregivers, etc.
