My Dad was picked up by the Red House bus several times a week so he could interact with others beside my Mom on a weekly basis. It was a change of pace for the both of them. My Dad didn’t want to go at first, but he ended up liking it a lot.

The added bonus was knowing that my Mom was going to get some time to herself to do what she wanted to do. Taking care of a person with multiple diseases was taxing on her.
What a blessing it is to know that this is a local service in our Tri-Cities area.
Caring, professionals who understand the needs of aging adults.Charlie E.
