DayBreak Senior Care prepares Halloween gifts

Posted

The seniors at DayBreak Senior Care recently made Halloween gifts for the preschoolers in the Mother’s Day Out Program at Gulf Shores United Methodist Church. The bracelets that featured reflectors were delivered to the children to wear as they went trick-or-treating. The preschooler class has often visited DayBreak and entertained the seniors with parades and singing. Everybody had a great time –both the givers and the children! Pictured here from the left, making the gifts are Velma Tuttle, Carol Hines, Marion Noojin, Blan Blankenship, Jean Cocker and John Oehlke.

DayBreak Senior Care provides a secure, loving environment where individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia are encouraged to participate in playing games, art and craft projects, music, mild exercising and social interaction. The senior daycare provides participants’ fulltime caregiver with short term relief from the unrelenting demands of caregiving duties while knowing that their loved ones will be active in a caring environment.

DayBreak is a community outreach mission, serving lower Baldwin County and is taking applications at this time. Participants must be pre-registered. The program is not designed to provide medical or counseling services but to provide support for the caregivers and their loved ones. It is offered every Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located in Room 109 at the South Campus of Gulf Shores United Methodist Church. Cost is $20 per visit and includes a hot lunch.
