Thank you letter for Aug. 16, 2020

Thank you, merci, danke, gracias, gunalchéesh.

The Bridge Adult Day Program of Southeast Senior Services, a division of Catholic Community Service, would like to recognize the Juneau Community Foundation’s Hope Endowment Grant and CBJ Social Service Grants for continued support of Juneau’s only adult day program. The Bridge provides activities and socialization for anyone over the age of 60 who needs more assistance during the day, or individuals of any age that are experiencing memory loss from Traumatic Brain Injury, Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.

Thanks to the funding provided, The Bridge is able to offer services that allow seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible, eliminating or delaying the need for institutionalization. The Bridge offers respite for caregivers, giving them the ability to continue working, run errands and care for themselves while knowing that their loved one is safe in a compassionate and understanding environment. Without the support of the Juneau Community Foundation’s Hope Endowment Grant and CBJ Social Service Grants, The Bridge Adult Day Program would not be able to continue the tradition of providing high quality services to seniors and their families.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Garrison,

Caregiver Support Regional Coordinator/Bridge Adult Day Program Manager
