If you would like to Volunteer your time to help out in your Community, Tammi Reardon would love to have you come and help at Terrific Tuesdays.
Terrific Tuesdays is a Quality Day Respite for Caregivers’ patients with Dementia, Alzheimer’s, or Memory Loss. It is a place where caregivers can leave their Loved Ones in Good Hands while taking some much-needed time for themselves.
Caregivers work around the clock and don’t have time for themselves to do things that we all take for granted: Getting a haircut, going to the grocery store, shopping, going to the doctor, eating out with friends, or just having some time to be alone and take a minute to rest.
Terrific Tuesday meets every Tuesday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm at the First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs, located at 301 Church St.
The Volunteers are usually one-on-one with the participants. They have a different theme every week, play games, have exercise, do crafts, have music, do puzzles, and have a nice lunch that wonderful volunteers also cook.
If you know someone who could benefit from Terrific Tuesdays, please call Tammi Reardon, and she will give you all the information you need. 903-243-5620
