Good Day Respite Program
This program provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals with memory loss, while allowing supporting caregivers much-needed time off. Supervised volunteers assist with the program, which offers a nutritious lunch and snacks, activities such as crafts and games, entertainment, special guests and more. Good Day Respite is offered throughout the year on Mondays and Thursdays at Kearsarge Community Presbyterian Church in New London and on Fridays at United Methodist Church in Lebanon. Typical volunteer shifts are 9:45am – 12:00pm and 12:00 – 3:00pm.
Trained hospice volunteers go into the home, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and hospitals to offer support. Volunteers run errands, help with light chores, take patients out to lunch or for a ride, sit and talk with or listen to patients and family members in need of a caring ear, and provide respite care to full-time caregivers. Hospice volunteers also follow up with bereavement and help with grief support groups. Because of the special needs of hospice patients, there is a required 12-week training program for hospice volunteers, which is offered annually or semi-annually if the demand is present.
