Friendship Centers, a nonprofit organization serving older adults in Southwest Florida, has received a $15,000 grant from the Wilson-Wood Foundation. The funds will be used toward the development and expansion of the Caregiver Resource Center (CRC) on the Road program, which was begun in 2011. Caregivers and families in the Newtown community will now continue to receive hands-on information and support services in their own backyard. One goal of the program is to help seniors find the information they need about caregiving and learn new ways to cope with the stresses and challenges of being a caregiver. Through this grant and other generous donors to this program, these needed services will continue and expand into South Sarasota County, and are free to anyone who needs them. The Caregiving Place also offers respite for caregivers through its Adult Day Service in Sarasota and Venice, Monday through Friday. Loved ones with cognitive and/or physical challenges receive compassionate, yet professional loving care at our licensed centers and their caregivers receive respite from caregiving duties knowing their care partners are having fun and enjoying socialization with others.
