The Bright Horizons program began with just one member over 30 years ago. Currently, we have two site locations, shown below, providing respite to over 100 families each month. These programs provide a safe place for loved ones who are in need of a supportive environment during the day, and respite for their caregivers. Bright Horizons partners with families to offer a program that includes companionship, hot meals, exercise, recreation, and socialization.
More than 14,000 days of respite were provided to caregivers throughout the Capital Region. The Bright Horizons Caregiver Resource Center continues to offer valuable information and materials for families. Other resources offered by Bright Horizons to members and their families include Virtual Caregiving, which offers caregivers a unique opportunity to keep in touch with loved ones while they are enjoying Bright Horizons. Caregiver support groups are also available in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association at our Bright Horizons locations:
