Caregivers’ day off



BAR HARBOR — The Don & Beth Straus Center, located at Birch Bay Retirement Village, is offering one free day at its senior day program between Dec. 24 and Jan. 4.

“We want to give caregivers a break from the stress of the season,” said James Hoke, program coordinator. “Their loved ones can try the Straus Center for one day for free.”

The Straus Center Program, for members ages 55 and over, includes supervision, activities, lunch, snacks, socialization, fun and engaging experiences. Guests must meet program eligibility requirements and the program will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

“The holiday season is a busy, stressful time of the year for everyone- especially caregivers,” Hoke said. “Caregivers can spend their time wrapping presents, shopping or maybe even having a cup of coffee with a friend.”
