The Ahrens Program provides respite time for caregivers during the day. The program is designated for individuals with cognitive impairments who may require a supervised environment. Participants are offered continental breakfast, arts & crafts, tables games, cognitive-fit games, exercise, music entertainment, trips and other special events. Hours are: 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday—Friday. Our warm and inviting Ahrens Program is staffed with 48 years of combined experience and a team of dedicated, trained volunteers. The cost is $10 per day for Milford residents, and $15 per day for out-of-town residents. Please contact Rita Whiskeyman, Ahrens Program Coordinator (203) 877-5131.
