Mission Statement

This program trains volunteers to provide education, support and respite for caregivers of those with mid-to-late stages of Alzheimer's disease, other dementias, and the frail elderly. These specially trained volunteers also engage Alzheimer's, dementia and frail elderly patients in creative arts and storytelling. A nurse practitioner is available to offer home visits to patients providing a holistic approach to the treatment of the disease within the context of the patient's life and preferences. This initiative reflects Cabrini's commitment to families, patients and quality care that volunteers and staff provide.
