The Walla Walla Valley only has one adult day care program, which is located at The Center at the Park, 720 Sprague Ave., according to the February issue of The Bottom Line.
Funding cuts and a decrease in clientele are threatening to close the doors on the program.
It's been around since 1993 and loved ones can attend the program for fun while their caregivers get a bit of respite/ time off.
It is available for those 45 and older. Attendees receive a nutritious lunch and snacks, a full range of activities, guest speakers and entertainers and aid with personal care.
Funding assistance is offered to those who qualify.
The Adult Day Center can always use financial donations and needs decaf coffee, nutritional snacks, rhythm instruments, red watercolor markers and fruit juices. For more details, call 527-0771.
Yee-haw. The District 4 Ladies Auxiliary will sponsor the Feb. 16 strawberry waffle supper fundraiser at The Center at the Park, 720 Sprague Ave. For $3.50, diners will get a sausage, coffee and Belgian waffle piled with strawberries and whipped cream. The meal is served from 5:30-6:30 p.m. after which the Olde Thyme Musicians will play. Last month, Park Manor sponsored the dinner and residents from that facility, Wheatland Village and Garrison Creek Lodge came by the busloads to the meal, the senior center's newsletter reported.
