New Hyde Park, NY, October 24, 2017 — Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation is proud to announce a new and innovative Caregiver Respite Program for older adults on Eastern Long Island, under a grant from the UJA Federation of New York.  The purpose of this program is to provide relief for caregivers of older adults who need a break, while providing meaningful activities for their loved ones.

Parker’s mobile adult caregiver respite program offers an array of therapeutic activities that enhance quality of life for older adults, enabling them to make new friends and remain active: music; art; current events discussion; trivia, and more.  During staff visits, caregivers will have time to relax, run errands, go to an appointment or spend time with friends and family, with the peace of mind that their loved ones are under the supervision of a professional and caring staff.

This is an opportunity for caregivers to find relief and respite, while loved ones participate in activities that enhance quality of life, increase socialization, make new connections and stay active.  To apply for the program, please call (718) 289-2102 or https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PMADCapplication
