When is this program offered?

Respite care is currently offered on Tuesdays from 9:30am-12:30pm. FBS is looking to expand these hours in the future.

Who is this program for?

The program is designed for Seniors in early to mid-stages of Dementia or Alzheimer’s who want to socialize in a comfortable environment. Participants must be mobile, and able to communicate with our staff. Seniors with incontinence issues, serious aggression or wandering are not appropriate for this program.

Our focus is on giving loved ones and caregivers their time back, providing caregivers an opportunity to have a break, rest, or  run errands. Caregivers will have peace of mind knowing that they are leaving their loved ones in the hands of trained volunteers and staff, who will be actively engaged with them in fun activities the whole time. Lunch will be served during the program.

Who should I contact for more information and to sign up?

Please contact Jame Hedgemon, Program Care Worker at 281-848-9906 or email her at jame@fortbendseniors.org.
