University Class that Provides Respite Care Going Strong After 20 Years
Kathy Guisewite, CCN Coordinator
A James Madison University class where students provide companionship for adults 60-years-old and older has been benefitting the students as well as their clients for 20 years.
Experiencing memorable moments and forming bonds with clients has been a common experience for students who participate in the Caregivers Community Network, a collaborative effort between Valley Program for Aging Services and JMU's Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services.
