Walk # 2 in the series of seven local mini-walks was held at Wesley House Assisted Living/Wesley Oaks Memory Care. Residents and their families participated alongside local health care workers and members of the facility staff. Walkers can receive a yellow Terrific Tuesdays T-shirt for $20, which goes to the Terrific Tuesdays Cargiver Respite Program. Terrific Tuesdays is held weekly at First United Methodist Church, currently with about 14 members who have memory loss. Each Tuesday, their caregivers are given the “day off” and Terrific Tuesdays provides a fun-filled day for their loved one with games, meals and social interaction. A trained volunteer is assigned to each member for the day. Through October 4, donations are being sought to make up the entire year’s budget for implementing the Terrific Tuesdays program. The 2018 goal is $10,000. Donations from industry, bsuiness and individuals are welcome. Please mail donations marked “Terrific Tuesdays” to 150 MLK Drive, Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482, or drop off your check at the Sr. Citizens Center.
