There comes a time in our lives when we may have to take time out to care for a family member who has become dependent on assistance for various health reasons. Caregivers transport their loved ones to doctor’s offices, schedule medical appointments, accompany them on grocery shopping trips and assist them in so many ways. However, it is so very important that some respite time is necessary for the caregiver, enabling them to continue with patience and dedication to those who are in need of assistance. Finding that respite time for themselves is challenging for caregivers. However, at the Milford Senior Center, the Ahrens Program, provides an opportunity for a loved one to enjoy varied activities that are beneficial to both the participant and the caregiver. On its 30th year, the Ahrens Program is staffed with a combined 48 years of experienced staff. It has been described as one of the Milford Senior Center's "best kept resource" for families needing a structured, safe and fun environment for persons with various memory/cognitive impairments. For more information, contact Rita Whiskeyman, Ahrens Program Coordinator at (203) 877-5131 ex 2114
