Club RCA Day Program
Club RCA with Respite Care Atlanta offers activities and socialization for older adults facing cognitive challenges, 3 days a week from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), and provides an opportunity for caregivers to take a respite from caregiving responsibilities.
Respite Care Atlanta is a professionally led, volunteer-driven respite program designed to support caregivers and their loved ones in a safe, caring and comfortable atmosphere. We seek volunteers of all ages to provide families with an affordable, community-based, social-recreational program option for respite care.
Caregiver Support Groups
RCA’s Caregiver Support Group Program offers a complimentary service that provides mutual support from other caregivers, strategies to reduce caregiver stress and helpful information for families navigating Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Memory Care Resources
Respite Care Atlanta is dedicated to helping caregivers and families find the support and care that fits their needs when facing cognitive issues with a loved one. Even if a day program is not suited for their family, Respite Care Atlanta will do their best to help connect families to the right memory care resources.
Sarahs’ Garden honors two best friends, Sarah Kennedy and Sarah Clarke, who formed one of Atlanta’s first Alzheimer‘s support groups together. Both women cared for a parent with Alzheimer’s disease.
