    Respite care gives caregivers well-deserved break

    The Memory Makers respite care  program began in October after Dianne Arnold, an Alzheimer’s trainer for the Division of Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia of the Mississippi Department of Mental Health, teamed up with Jo Ann O’Quin, a University of Mississippi social work professor and the founding member of the local Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group, which is celebrating its 26th anniversary in February.

    The participants start their day at Memory Makers with coffee or tea and a small snack. On Thursday, it was banana nut bread. The group gathers around a table along with the program volunteers to sing songs, tell stories about their past or play trivia games. (January 28, 2011, Page 1B)
