Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital has limited openings for one of our newest programs, A Day at Charlie’s Place, which allows primary or professional caregivers and memory-impaired individuals four hours of interactive activities in a safe non-judgmental environment.
For those who do not qualify for Charlie’s Place due to incontinence or very limited mobility or for the primary caregivers who are yet unsure of the plan of care for the affected individual, this program is unique in that it presents several key benefits for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers:
- The program allows those affected to remain connected, socialized, and fulfilled. Tuesdays at Charlie’s Place allows those affected to participate in a gamut of activities ranging from technological-driven activities to field trips and mentally stimulating games that improve emotional and physical well-being.
- As the effects of Alzheimer’s increases, those affected tend to cling to what is familiar, whether it is a family member or a professional caregiver. A Day at Charlie’s Place allows those affected and their caregiver to create moments of joy…together.
- The program also reduces social isolation.
The caregiver/affected pairs meet weekly at Charlie’s Place each Friday from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm to participate in the program.
The day mimics a typical day for clients at Charlie’s Place. Each participant can enjoy a purposeful day with activities such as exercise, trivia games, art therapy, and music enhancement. There are no costs involved and lunch is provided by the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging Congregate Meal Program.
