Change a life as a companion!

At one of our gathering group respite sites, we have three clients who have Alzheimer's and they also have challenging behaviors. Our clients have been refused services at other adult day programs. Due to the skill level of our volunteers, we have retired teachers, nurses and a music therapist; this site is able to manage the challenging behaviors. Our clients are also able to engage in meaningful activities while participating at Zion Gathering. The patience and professionalism demonstrated by the volunteers is a benefit to Anoka County Family Caregiver Connection Program.
