CLAYTON — The Light House program at Salem Church of God, which has been helping caregivers for six months, is ready to accept additional participants.

The program’s trained volunteers provide a time for caregivers to get away for a few hours – to go to doctor appointments, get a haircut, do lawn care, have lunch with a friend or simply rest – while the volunteers have social time with the family member who has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Light House is a Christian-based program, and the social time includes games, crafts, devotions, sing-a-longs, exercise, bingo, walks and other activities.

The program is offered one day a week without charge. For an assessment or more information about Light House, please contact Co-Director Pam Hall at (937) 602-4227. Salem Church of God is at 6500 Southway Road in Clayton.
