New Participants invited to agency’s ‘Day Out!’ program

FamilyMeans’ Day Out! program welcomes new participants to the weekly group respite program, agency officials announced.

Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays in Stillwater, Day Out! supports families caring for adults with chronic health issues by providing a safe, supervised environment where care receivers come together to enjoy conversation, crafts, games, songs, exercises and fun while their caregivers take an often much-needed break.

Volunteers are paired with care receivers ensuring individualized attention and the opportunity to get to know each other and enjoy activities together on a regular basis.

Baseball, guitars, healthy snacks, Costa Rica and Earth Day are just some of the many themes that will soon be explored in Day Out!
The cost to participate in Day Out! is $40 per person per visit and scholarships are available.

Day Out! is part of the Caregiver Support program at FamilyMeans, which has provided in-home respite care, support groups, coaching and counseling and education programs for more than 25 years. Participants in Day Out! are not required to live in Washington County.
