Thank you, everyone, for your kind support.
Angelbear, there IS a huge need for this type of care. My dad had dementia and my mom took care of him at home. She was exhausted. I found a day services program in the basement of a local church for him, and a bus took him there three days a week. They had coffee and rolls, read the newspaper, played games, and made crafts. He loved it!
My dad was terrified of having to go to a nursing home, but my mom needed help. This program was perfect, because he thought he was just going to a Senior Citizens group. One of the men there called it "going to work".
I was thinking of starting a program similar to that one: a small group of seniors who just needed someplace to go during the day.
