Brightview Sayville hosted a Caregivers’ Day of Renewal in partnership with Day Haven Adult Day Services in Ronkonkoma and Home Instead this fall. The day’s mission was to give people caring for loved ones with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease an opportunity for self-care and relaxation.
The entire community came together to treat these caregivers to a well-deserved day of rest. While Brightview Sayville hosted the events and provided meals, community organizations eagerly jumped at the chance to let tired, stressed caregivers unwind.
The Pilot Club of Sayville escorted participants to chair massages and various programs throughout the day. Day Haven provided a full slate of therapeutic activities, including outdoor sessions, painting, ribbon stretching and movement, and reflection. The entire day focused on filling the caregiver bucket.
Long Island native comedian Chris Monty performed a hilarious stand-up routine, providing a much-needed emotional release for caregivers. As they say, laughter is the best medicine!
The effect of the day was obvious – as everyone left the community, they were visibly more relaxed. Connecting with other caregivers was so valuable for all attendees, as they shared their stresses, frustrations, funny moments, and more.
