New Initiative for Adults with Cognitive Challenges
The Cathedral is part of a new initiative to provide weekday adult respite care in our community, staffed primarily by volunteers. With six other congregations, we have formed Respite Care Atlanta to offer a safe place for those with mild cognitive impairment to interact with others, as well as give caregivers time for self-care. The program is scheduled to operate four days a week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a targeted ratio of one volunteer for every two participants. We are currently recruiting volunteers and participants from our founding congregations. Potential volunteers, please contact Lola Battle, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mary Caroline Cravens, email@example.com. Caregivers of potential participants, please contact: Wendy Liverant, director, at 404-591-4365 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit respitecareatlanta.org.
