The Veranda, a primary outreach of Veranda Ministries and a ministry supported by Impact Fellowship Church, provides a time of nurturing respite care to allow family caregivers much needed time for themselves. Services for family also include a monthly support group for caregivers and a semi-annual caregiver conference. The conference helps family members and other caregivers utilize biblical principles to cope with the physical and emotional toll of a stressful life situation. The number of clients in The Veranda's respite program has doubled since its 2012 launch. A nominal fee is charged per day. If a client's financial situation is of concern, a scholarship may be applied toward the cost of a client's care, if eligible.
The Veranda is proud to provide quality respite care for the benefit of its clients, their family members and volunteers in a safe, supportive and non-threatening environment. We realize that not everyone can benefit from or tolerate the structure of the services we offer, and may require more specialized services than are available at The Veranda. In some cases, an individual's participation or involvement in our service may actually be detrimental to himself/herself or others.
All volunteers complete a minimum of 12 hours of training. All of The Veranda staff is vetted and trained in the care of senior adults and their needs.
The Veranda is not limited to serving only those with Alzheimer’s. We know there are families caring for loved ones who have other needs. The program at The Veranda is meeting the needs of the senior population and their families who are affected by the aging process.
