In this episode of Chetco Activity Center – Your Gathering Place, host Scott Clapson sits down with LaVonne Engstrom the director of the Time Out for Me program at the Chetco Activity Center.

LaVonne shares with Scott about this Adult Day Care Respite Program that is funded by a grant from the Older Americans Act. LaVonne operates the program with the help of volunteers who have experience in family caregiving. A typical day with Time Out for Me includes music, singing, games, crafts, and other activities to help give a day off for the family caregiver.

If you know someone who is interested in enrolling their family member or someone they know in the Time Out for Me program, you can call LaVonne at 541-373-9001 or call the Chetco Activity Center at 541-469-6822.

Time Out for Me meets every Monday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Chetco Activity Center in Brookings, Oregon. (The Chetco Activity Center is closed on federal holidays.)
