The HELP Adult Respite Care Program (HARC) program provides needed aid for caregivers by creating a safe place where cognitively challenged seniors can participate in activities designed specifically to enrich their daily lives. We provide a supportive day program focusing on participant’s capabilities, experience, interests and personalities so that his/her potential is maximized. This program runs every Tuesday from 11-3 throughout the year in the lower level of the Rangeley Family Medicine Facility. Please call our administrative offices at 864-4397 ext. 4 for more details.
Neighbors Calling Neighbors was developed this year by the HELP committee and currently provides a daily phone call to seniors who appreciate a daily check-in and contact with a caring person. The callers have received training in listening skills and make connections for additional help when it is appropriate providing important connections for these isolated individuals. Volunteer callers have paired students from the high school Interact Club (Rotary) with seniors needing chores done such as bringing the wood in or weeding the garden. This relationship is very rewarding and beneficial to both young and old alike. For more information call Marcia at 864-3351.
HELP is offering a Winter Senior Social Center Program during the months of January, February, March and April. This program is held every Thursday from 10am-2pm at the undercroft of the Church of the Good Shepard. These winter months can be a time of isolation for those living alone and we feel this service will help alleviate that isolation. This is a time filled with conversation, games, cards, puzzles, adult education programs, and a noon meal. The Food Pantry is also open that day in the same location and hopefully can provide some extra necessities for seniors. RHW is providing this program with generous support from the Rangeley Rotary. For more information call Marge at 864-5383.
