Bullis Fund Grant awarded to Wayne ARC
Wayne ARC was awarded a $24,000 grant to benefit its new Meadow Creek Social Adult Day Services Program in Macedon. The money was used for startup materials including kitchen appliances, cookware, furniture, gaming systems, a projector, television and sound system.
The goal of the social adult day service is to provide support services and social activities for seniors and people with disabilities in a safe, social environment while providing respite to their caregivers. Activities offered through the program include health promotion and wellness, family support and education, greenhouse activities, supervised cooking and baking, field trips and educational activities. Members of the community will also be invited to participate in activities such as music and art classes offered through the program.
Meadow Creek integrates Wayne ARC’s day habilitation program attendees and seniors, including persons with dementia and Alzheimer’s. With the funds provided by the Bullis Grant, a new presentation room was set up on site to hold classes and presentations by the Alzheimer’s Association for families.
