The Pulaski County Alzheimer Respite Center is being forced to close at the end of the day on May 5, 2017. The center serves elders with dementia and Alzheimer disease to have a richer and more fulfilled life.  It offers them activities, socialization, and fellowship.  It is also a very important service for the caregivers of these clients as well.  It allows them to maintain a decorum of normality in life and have a break from the strains of constant supervision and struggle to care for, provide for, and keep safe those they love so much.  The Respite Center allows caregivers to work, attend school, run errands, and even have a few precious moments of much needed and well deserved down time.  

The Respite Center also offers a support group and education for caregivers to help them cope with seeing their loved one being held prisoner in their own mind.  

Clients come from all walks of life. Former doctors, lawyers, farmers, pharmacists, factory workers, pastors, housewives, clerks, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, ladies and gentlemen than helped to build our country and we owe them everything we have.  They also serve veterans and currently serve 2 World War II veterans and this is not the treatment they deserve.  They don't deserve to be tossed aside, and their families don't either.  Our elderly are golden, they deserve our respect.  Help us get Governor Matt Bevin and the State of Kentucky to approve increased funding and keep this precious resource open.  Please sign.,  Sign and share for others.
