Three important ways YOU can make the lives of
Alzheimer's families happier and healthier:
1.give a donation to the Caregiver Relief Program,
$100 pays for quality respite care for one month/family
2. offer to take a friend out to lunch or "sit" with loved one
3.learn how to support the caregiver; friend or family, and refer them to the
free services of the Caregiver Relief Program of Bedford County!

**It is great to have a community that cares!

***************************************************Background
The Caregiver Relief Program of Bedford County (CGRPBC) began in 1993.
The program has developed into a home based medical care giving ministry.
The Caregiver Relief Program of Bedford County is a non-profit charitable
organization and assists the caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease.
A Registered Nurse visits the home to assess the condition of the participant
and caregiver, offer support, education, medical assessment and referrals.
Our program is also very unique in that we are the only program in Tennessee
that provides free nursing visits in the home.


WE ARE EXPANDING!!

Caregiver Relief Program of Middle TN now offers educational experiences , a caregiver closet, and respite care in Davidson County. Teka Moten is our Program Director for the expansion. 

We are now also trained to give the Virtual Dementia Tours with Second Wind Dreams. We hosted a tour last week at "the Waters of Shelbyville" for their Staff development day. Many staff were amazed at what an Alzheimer's diagnosis patient goes through. The tour is a sampling of their symptoms. Watch to see when the next date we provide a tour. We hope to give staff & family members as well as the community an empathetic look at Alzheimer's disease.

Teka is working on a new web-site , e-mail, & Facebook page. We will have more contact info as we move along with the expansion!
