Happy Hearts Club Respite Care
Founder, Dianne McGarey was led to organize the Happy Hearts Club (HHC) Respite Care at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church after losing her husband of 26 years to Alzheimer's. Dianne had "been there" and she, armed with a troop of friendly volunteers, started the HHC in October, 2008. HHC is dedicated to the encouragement of those who are selflessly caring for loved ones at home.
Currently, HHC is Directed by Angi Lewallen, a RN who works at a local hospital. She started with Happy Hearts in October, 2008. She was a caregiver to her mother and father, both of whom had cancer, and her grandmother who had Alzheimer's.
The Happy Hearts Club meets weekly on Monday's from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is located in the Peachtree Corners Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. For more information, contact Susan Kearns at 508-415-0765.
Participants bring a bagged lunch. Snacks and beverages are provided throughout the day.
