Rangeley Health and Wellness recently received two $5,000 grants, one from the Harold Dudley Charitable Fund and the other from the Western Mountains Fund, both of the Maine Community Foundation in support of the newly established HELP Adult Respite Care Program.

HARC is a state licensed social respite care program designed to provide needed aid for caregivers by creating a safe place where cognitively challenged seniors can participate in activities designed specifically to enrich their lives.

The program provides a supportive structure that focuses on a participant’s capabilities, experiences, interests, and personality so that his/her potential is maximized. RHW’s HARC program is based on the Brookdale Model providing fun and engaging social and educational programs designed for seniors with early to moderate memory loss.

The program now operates in the lower level of the Rangeley Family Medicine facility, 42 Dallas Hill Road, Rangeley. Respite care is provided from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday.
