Respite Services

At Alzheimer’s Project, we understand that the journey with dementia can be long and often puts caregivers at risk of social isolation, physical illness, and financial strain. To support caregivers, Alzheimer’s Project offers a respite program, which we call our Social Club. Whether it’s running errands, attending appointments, or simply resting, this program gives caregivers the opportunity to take a break and focus on their own needs.

Social Club FAQs

Is my Loved One Eligible?

To qualify, care partners must complete a Florida Elder Affairs assessment with a case manager. These assessments take about 45 minutes and may be completed over the phone or at the Alzheimer’s Project administrative office. After this assessment, clients are assigned a respite care location and given a start date. For your loved one’s safety, please complete a consultation before attending our Social Club. Call (850)386-2778 and ask to speak with a case manager to schedule your assessment today.

What can my Loved One Expect?

Alzheimer’s Project offers person centered care at each respite location. Clients can expect opportunities to engage in diverse activities such as music and art therapy, pet therapy, guided exercise, group activities, games, intergenerational socialization, and nutritious meals.

What can Caregivers Expect?

Care Partners can expect to enjoy a well-deserved break knowing their loved one is being cared for by Alzheimer’s Project Staff. To ensure your loved one is a good fit for the program, there is a two-week trial period for each client. Currently, we are only able to offer clients one day of respite per week. Clients may be dropped off any time after 9 AM but must be picked up before 3 PM.
