Joanne Case from the Broome County Council of Churches Faith in Action Volunteers (pictured on the left) and Cathy James from the Alzheimer’s Association (pictured on the right) spoke on the Southern Tier Close Up airing October 6th about upcoming programs reaching out to care-givers and isolated women.

James says many times care-givers become overwhelmed as they work around the clock meeting the needs of their loved ones and could use a break.

James says the Alzheimer’s Association will train interested volunteers on skills needed to help patients with memory impairments that not only will relieve some of the stress on the care-giver but can also help the patient with more interaction and skills.

Case says the other initiative will reach out to women who may not have the facilities to get out of the home and into social settings. Case says the program will work in cooperation with existing senior centers and other agencies.
