The Caring Place of Magnolia is a fee based adult respite program designed to provide social interaction and stimulating exercise opportunities for participants with early memory loss, Alzheimer's, and dementia.
The Caring Place is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
The weekly schedule includes activities that connect and engage, such as games that consist of bingo, checkers, and puzzles. Hand-eye coordination is challenged on the Wii, an interactive video game that allows participants to play virtual bowling and other sports. The exercise routine consists of stretching and kicking beach balls, and the music segment varies from familiar hymns to dance tunes. Other activities include crafts, special entertainment, seasonal activities, and field trips.
If you wish to volunteer to serve, contact the church office and Barbara Lewis at 870-234-4530.
