Good Day Respite
This program provides a safe and enjoyable environment for individuals with memory loss, while allowing supporting caregivers much-needed time off. Supervised volunteers assist with the program, which offers a healthy lunch and snacks, activities such as crafts and games, entertainment, special guests and more. Good Day Respite is offered throughout the year on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Kearsarge Community Presbyterian Church in New London. Typical volunteer shifts are 9:45am – 12:15pm or 12:00 – 3:00pm.
Created to raise funds and awareness for Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice, The Renaissance Shoppe sells fine quality antiques, furniture, estate pieces, jewelry and more, all of which have been generously donated. Open several days each week, volunteers are needed for all hours of operation. Typical shifts are 10:00am – 1:00pm or 1:00 – 4:00pm.
Trained hospice volunteers go into homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and hospitals to offer support or just be with a patient. They sit and talk with or listen to patients and family members in need of a caring ear, engage in patient hobbies, and provide brief respite care to full-time caregivers. They sometimes help with bereavement support as well. Because of the special needs of hospice patients, there is a required training program for hospice volunteers, which is offered annually or semi-annually if the demand is present.
