Break Time Club goes Mobile!
Cindy, Break Time Club Coordinator and the BTC volunteers have been making weekly calls to the caregivers during
the pandemic shut down. The idea of a drive-through BTC event came about because of the stress we
could hear in the conversations with the caregivers. More caregivers than we would have ever imagined
have told us they are seeking placement for their loved ones – that they “just can’t do it anymore”. One
woman commented that her daughter was going through a very difficult time and with the care her
husband required with his dementia she had decided to place him at Cameron Veterans Home as soon
as possible. “I have other people in my family I love too” was Helen’s comment. So sad, but made it so
very apparent that just a few hours a week of respite really does make a difference in the mental and
physical health of a caregiver.
