Well-Spring Solutions, formerly known as The Adult Center for Enrichment.
Well-Spring Solutions offers adult day care for older adults with dementia, providing not only its participants with socialization, cognitive stimulation and a safe, secure setting, but also much-needed breaks for family caregivers.
As difficult as it is under normal circumstances to care for a loved one with dementia, just imagine doing so during COVID. Now more than ever, these families desperately need critical assistance.
Each year, Well-Spring Solutions hosts a breakfast to raise roughly one-third of the annual operational support needed to provide its services. Since they could not host their annual Be the Solution! Breakfast in 2020, they put together an electronic program that can be viewed here.
The DEJOY\WOS Family Foundation contributed $10,000 in 2020 to help support Well-Spring Solutions and their important mission of care.
