Laurie is the sole family caregiver for Sheila, age 80 and living with Alzheimer’s. Laurie found DayBreak online and talked with our specialist:
“Caring for mom was overwhelming at times…She was so vulnerable. I realized we needed something else. So I looked online, and I found DayBreak. I talked with your program specialist — it was such a relief to learn about the network of centers, the logistics, and options. You recommended a program for mom. She is now happier than I have seen her in years.” — Laurie

We listen first, and then describe options that may fit their needs. It could be one of the 13 adult care centers in the County or another resource, such as home delivered meals.
