Caring Closet Pilot Club Project Moves

Take Me To Post Comment Form

In June, the Statesboro "Caring Closet" project to assist those with dementia causing illnesses, moved from the Outreach Center on Denmark Street to Pittman Park United Methodist Church on Fair Road . The physical move of supplies was facilitated by local volunteers and by staff from the Coastal Georgia Alzheimer's Association regional office.
The Statesboro Pilot Club membership continues to support the project through monetary donations and through service to caregivers on Friday mornings, 9:30-1:30pm since 2007.
Family caregivers of individuals in the later stages of dementia will continue to receive once monthly allottments of bed pads, adult disposable underwear, barrier cream, gloves and wipes to assist the patient. all that is required is a one time statement from the physician that the patient has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or dementia and the patient is living at home. The form may be obtained by calling 1-800-272-3900 during regular office hours. The Alzheimer's Association office staff will fax this form to the physician for signature.
Caregivers should park in the back of the church and enter through the church office door. Supplies will be distributed in a room directly across from the church office. This project is a cooperative venture of Statesboro Pilot Club and the regional office of the Alzheimer's Association. Donations of supplies or funding to purchase needed supplies are welcomed. Please make any checks out to Alzheimer's Association, 201 Television Circle, Savannah, GA 31406 and include a note that the funds are for the Caring Closet project in Statesboro.
If you have questions, please contact Theresa Bayman at 1-800-272-3900.
