In response to the needs of the many caregivers in our community, My Friends House is dedicated to providing a safe environment for those who are impaired by Alzheimer's Disease or a similar dementia. We strive to provide a cheerful, homelike place to help overcome isolation and to delay nursing home confinement. To provide caregivers with education, support, peace of mind and above all - some time for themselves. CARE-NET has as its mission to find new and innovative ways of helping informal (lay/family) and formal (professional) caregivers for persons with physical or mental illnesses, difficulties of the frail elderly, developmental disabilities, or those with substance abuse problems.
